Mainstream media rarely cover traffic crashes beyond a traffic report. Shouldn’t a loss of life be more important than how traffic is delaying the commute?
At Human Streets, a new non-profit media organization, our approach is different. Unlike other media outlets, we don’t treat traffic deaths as the human cost of having cars on our streets.
Our mission is to tell the story of every person killed in traffic collisions in 2017 and beyond, following each case from the collision to the courts. We are also going to push the city to move faster to make our streets safer, and inspire readers to reimagine what our streets could be like if we designed them for humans instead of cars.
Central to our reporting will be how traffic injustice disproportionately affects communities of color. Most of the deaths and injuries occur in neighborhoods such as the Tenderloin, SoMa and Chinatown, transit-dependent communities where a majority of residents don't own cars.
This kind of advocacy journalism will be critical if the city is going to reach zero traffic deaths by 2024, the goal known as Vision Zero. But we need support.
We are a 501(c)3 project of Community Initiatives. Your contribution is tax-deductible.
