Mission Statement

Since 1981, North Beach Neighbors has advocated and acted for a vibrant North Beach community. We believe our neighborhood is one of San Francisco's most special, and it should be more equitable and open so that more can experience the life-transforming experience of living in such an immersive, caring community.

North Beach Neighbors is proud of the following achievements, made possible by the decades of activism and participation of our members.

  • Started the North Beach Farmers Market to bring fresh, healthy food to our neighborhood

  • Quarterly street and park "Adopt-a-Street" cleanups to beautify streets and parks

  • Planned the Festival of Lights and Buon Natale events to bring the holiday spirit to our neighborhoods

  • Planned Neighborhood Emergency Response Team (N.E.R.T) training to help neighbors prepare for emergencies

  • Secured funds from the city’s participatory budget to complete and repair the Bill Weber Jazz Mural at Columbus & Broadway

  • Advocated to lessen impacts of the 2018 Washington Square Park closure
