Ignite the flame of change with PUEBLOTE: a community-driven movement that has been shaping San Francisco’s Excelsior District for decades, championing social and environmental justice like never before.
Open spaces, once neglected, now bloom with vibrancy, serving as havens of tranquility amidst the urban landscape, like Hummingbird Farm—a magnificent six-acre agricultural haven on once-neglected land adjacent to Crocker Amazon Park. Or Plaza Adelante, the community victory that put a public space: a city-owned parking lot, to use for people-centered needs: providing housing and ensuring access to an environmental justice park (In Chan Kajaaal) for the people that make the Mission District.Through our groundbreaking community development projects, we create pathways to collective economic prosperity, fostering a sustainable future for all.
PUEBLOTE’s work goes beyond fighting for individual beautiful green spaces or affordable housing developments; we build the leadership of our local residents to define what public land is used for.
