Dear Sunday Streets Fan,

Thank you for energizing the movement for a more livable city! From Slow Streets to car-free streets, from outdoor dining to outdoor cultural programming; Livable City’s mission to help communities reclaim their streets for health and wellness generated optimism and progress in neighborhoods across the City.

25% of San Francisco’s land is taken up by streets. These past two years have opened hearts and minds across the City to a core truth of our movement; that in addition to fostering connection, joy and health, empowering communities to own their streets is vital to address climate change, equity, small business recovery, and neighborhood resiliency.

With your support and engagement, Livable City is making great strides in building a grassroots movement for repurposing streets.

What We Did Together In 2021

  • Livable City fostered street reclaiming in the Bayview, Chinatown, and the Tenderloin with over two hundred days of car-free streets and space activations in partnership with diverse residents, grassroots organizations, merchants, and culture makers.
  • Livable City relaunched Sunday Streets with the first ever Phoenix Day — an inconceivably joyous citywide celebration with five neighborhood open streets, 29 block parties, and a 20-mile community-led bike ride.
  • Livable City helped craft and enact effective strategies to address the City’s environmental, economic, and livability challenges. We developed comprehensive strategies for climate, housing, and the recovery of small business, arts, and culture, helped reshape the Shared Spaces legislation to empower community use of streets, and advanced legislation to permit denser and more diverse housing in neighborhoods while protecting current residents and the environment.
From hyper-local neighborhoods to City Hall, the call for people-friendly streets is growing exponentially. For 2022, Livable City is building on this momentum for repurposed streets by bringing back Sunday Streets and by adding new projects with grassroots partners in Bayview, Chinatown, the Tenderloin, and other neighborhoods.

We need your help to increase Livable City’s capacity to deliver on our reputation for cost effective, high impact results across this broader field of work. In particular, we are raising funds  for a Program Manager to aid the growth of neighborhood projects.
