Senior Action Network’s Senior University is an innovative and free educational program. Senior University is a special leadership training course for seniors and persons with disabilities. The primary objective of the program is to give seniors and people with disabilities the opportunity to develop the skills and build confidence to be active community leaders. Senior University’s curriculum focuses on such topics as community organizing, leadership, lobbying and public speaking.
For the month of July, Senior Action Network will present a 4-class series on Pedestrian Safety and Right-Of-Way for Richmond Russian Speaking Resident Seniors.
Why Sidewalks and Pedestrian Safety?
The residents and merchants of Richmond district face several pedestrian safety and accessibility issues, especially along the major traffic corridors such as the Geary Blvd and Clement Street, (bicyclist not yielding to pedestrian and cars and other obstructions on the sidewalks). The goal of Senior University is to prepare Richmond Russian Speaking Resident Seniors on how to address these and other pedestrian issues.
