On Monday, January 16 (Martin Luther King Jr. Day), the Safe Passage Sidewalk Mural launched as a way to address safety concerns in the Tenderloin Community. 50 or more volunteers participated in painting the sidewalk mural as part of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service. The sidewalk mural will serve as a visual pathway of yellow bricks that connects schools, youth-service providers and community centers so children and teens can recognizably walk to and from their destinations safely.
The concept of Safe Passage was spearheaded by La Voz Latina, Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco, Chinatown Community Development Center, and North Of Market/Tenderloin Community Benefit District, and the mural was designed by Tenderloin-based artist/community organizer, (Sylvester Guard).
