The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition welcomes Adria Stauber to the Advocacy Team as our Campaign Assistant!
Tell us about your role at the SF Bicycle Coalition.
As a Campaign Assistant, I primarily work with the Advocacy Team and our awesome community organizer, Kristen to engage and communicate with members about our work during every step of the campaign process. Fresh off a major win with Better Market Street, we’re working on a number of campaigns that are crucial to creating safer streets in San Francisco and I’m excited to help push for a more bicycle-friendly city!
What do you love so far about your job?
I have really enjoyed being a part of an organization with such a passionate membership base and deep ties to the local community. Additionally, as a San Francisco resident, I have the chance to improve my neighborhood and make changes to streets right outside my front door. In my first month on the job, I was introduced to my first campaign, the Page Street Bikeways Improvement Project — a street that I bike every day to get to work.
What advocacy work have you done prior to working here?
While in college I joined a student group called Chicanxs/Latinxs in Health Education (CHE), which was focused on promoting and advocating for health education for disadvantaged communities in the Oakland area. One of my favorite events was our annual Community Health Fair where we engaged the community on a variety of health topics and promoted an active and healthy lifestyle to Oakland residents.
When you’re not working or biking, what fills your time?
I enjoy anything to do with being outdoors, so you can probably catch me on a run around Lake Merritt or hiking the Berkeley Fire Trails. Otherwise, I love to cook new recipes (thank you Claire from Bon Appetit) and I’m patiently waiting for Rihanna to drop her next album and go back on tour.
