Grey to Green, a YIMBY Latinx Walking Tour

Start: Saturday, July 22, 202310:30 AM

Are freeways racist? Have they harmed the Latino community? It's complicated. Come meet other YIMBYs in San Francisco! YIMBY Latinx will be doing a walking tour of the central freeway to give a glimpse into the past, present and future of San Francisco’s Central Freeway. What freeways did, what we have now, and what it can be. Walkable streets, restored green space and abundant, affordable homes.


YIMBY Latinx is partnering with Latino Conservation Week, the Vision Blvd Team, Urban Environmentalists and YIMBY Action for a walking tour Saturday, July 22nd! We'll be leaving at 11am, so please be on time. Connect over stories, ongoing work and learn how to get more involved. We'd like to thank our co-hosts & featured speakers:
  • Our sponsors, Latino Conservation Week & the Hispanic Access Foundation
  • Urban Environmentalists
  • The San Mateo County LatinX Democratic Club
  • Freeway Fighter Alex Contreras
  • The Vision Blvd Team
  • Our parent org, YIMBY Action
