A Guide to Organizations for Change—San Francisco Edition

The conversation about San Francisco has been dominated recently by housing, so maybe you forgot that San Francisco has a tradition of leading on social causes. Josh Wilson recently created a list for navigating the city like a radical.

“Face it: San Francisco has issues, and so do you,” writes Josh Wilson.

Wilson’s take is that despite it’s recent changes, San Francisco is still a place for radicals committed to overturning the status quo. So he created a “cheat sheet to help you connect up and start processing your (and your city’s) pain.”

The list is populated by organizations committed to improving the San Francisco, but a list like this is possible in any city, even with Wilson’s focus on the build environment. Here are two examples of Wilson’s categories:

Staying alive on your bike (Bike Kitchen, SF Bicycle Coalition, Critical Mass, California Bicycle Coalition)

Changing neighborhoods, changing times (FoundSF, San Francisco Preservation Society, Coalition for San Francisco Neighborhoods, Ohlone Profiles Project)
