People power drives our work. From Folsom to Upper Market, our victories in improving street design and safety in San Francisco could not have happened without the energy and sheer size of our members’ support.
More than ever, our grassroots street campaigns have been leading to fast, meaningful change in our streets. This doesn’t come easily, though. Most, if not all, of our campaigns for new bike lanes are hard-fought. At every step of the way, people power—the collective power of your thousands of voices—is what moves our City to act.
There is still so much more work to do to improve SF’s streets, so we need you. We are excited to host our first-ever daylong community organizer bootcamp, which will be a workshop to share the tools we use to win campaigns throughout San Francisco and beyond.
Building off of our past community organizing workshops, we’ve developed a day-long training that will give you the full set of skills necessary to become a member champion in our campaigns and even take on your own bike infrastructure issues.
This bootcamp is for everyone, whether you’ve been active for years or are just getting started. Throughout the day, using case studies and interactive activities, we’ll go over issue identification, power-mapping, campaign strategy and organizing tactics.
Join us on Saturday October 20 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at 1566 Howard Street to build your capacity as an organizer. Lunch and snacks will be provided.
