Calling All Streetsblog Superheroes: Sunday Is Your Last Chance to Give

Streetsblog’s spring pledge drive ends on Sunday, and we’re two-thirds of the way to our goal of 400 donors. Every contribution makes a difference — please give what you can and support our coverage.

Your donations allow Streetsblog to continue to challenge the misinformed and backwards positions staked out by city leaders. No other media source has done more to contest Mayor Ed Lee’s rationale for eliminating Sunday parking metering or held him to his commitment to Vision Zero.

Don’t forget, if you make a tax-deductible contribution before Sunday at midnight you’ll be in the running for a Cleverhood rain cape or a CINCH belt from Vespertine, available in one of three colors:

Think of your gift like a subscription — an awesome subscription where you get to choose how much you want to pay and get a chance to win cool stuff. And if you make your contribution as soon as possible, you can enjoy the weekend worry-free!

Thanks to all those who have already shown their support.

Six years ago today, I struck up a conversation with Therese as we walked through the fare gates into Powell Station to wait for the N-Judah. I’d seen her there before, since we both regularly took the train after our late-night retail shifts in Union Square through the holiday shopping season. Last weekend, while waiting […]
