Continuing to grieve for the lives lost in West Portal

 In Uncategorized

In the aftermath of one of the most devastating pedestrian tragedies in our city’s history, we continue to grieve.

Since the crash in West Portal on March 16, 2024, we have learned the names of all the members of the family hit and killed there: Diego Cardoso de Oliveira, Matilde Moncado Ramos Pinto, and their 2 children, Joaquim, 2, and Cauê, 3 months.

We hold all their loved ones in our thoughts today, and always.

Below are photos from the vigil that Walk San Francisco and Families for Safe Streets held on Monday, March 18, 2024 at the crash site.

I’m grateful to everyone who came out that evening, sharing in our heartbreak, humanity, and vulnerability.

San Francisco grieves. And now San Francisco must act.

This week is San Francisco’s ten-year anniversary of committing to Vision Zero, a proactive, proven approach to end severe and fatal traffic crashes.

My op-ed in today’s Chronicle talks about what’s needed for Vision Zero to succeed – and soon. You can echo this urgent message by sending a quick email to City leaders now.

These are our streets, and we deserve to be safe.
