KXSF Safe Streets Campaign
On New Years Eve, KXSF veteran volunteer and DJ Elizabeth Platt was one of two people killed in a tragic hit and run South of Market. Elizabeth and 27-year old Hanako Abe were in the crosswalk at 2nd and Mission when the incident occured.
As heartbreaking as this is, unfortunately it is not uncommon in San Francisco. On average, 3 people are stuck by vehicles every day in our city while walking. In honor of Elizabeth and others like her, KXSF is teaming up with Walk San Francisco to promote safer streets in our community.
Walk San Francisco is a non-profit organization formed in 1998 by a group of people committed to making San Francisco the most pedestrian-friendly city in the United States. To achieve this, Walk San Francisco has a three-tiered plan:
Campaigns to fix the city’s most dangerous streets
Safe Routes for All focusing on safer streets for children, seniors, people with disabilities, and transit riders
Protecting Pedestrians in San Francisco by advocating bold city and state policies
Please join KXSF in supporting the work of Walk San Francisco. Find out how you can help promote safer streets in our city by going to WalkSF.org
Rest in power, Elizabeth.
At KXSF we believe that food is not only a need but a human right. Before COVID-19 hit, over one in four people in the Bay Area were hungry. Now folks are experiencing hunger at even more alarming rates. The good news is there are so many ways to help. Donating, volunteering, organizing.
