Through a grant from the San Francisco Department of Public Health, the LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired in partnership with The Independent Living Resource Center and The Senior Action Network are working to clear up sidewalks obstructed by parked cars. This common occurrence forces passersby into harm’s way, particularly impacting seniors, persons with disabilities, and pedestrians with small children.

Supervisor Carmen Chu will launch the initiative by leading walking tours in the Sunset District. And we need your support to curb these risky sidewalk blockages! Attend upcoming trainings and gain public-speaking experience. A $50 stipend is available for those who complete at least one presentation at a community-based organization in the Sunset.
