Local Youth Groups Support Safe Streets in Hunters Point

About This Item

KPIX Eyewitness News report from August 6th 1969 in San Francisco by Belva Davis featuring scenes of members from the Youth for Service, Young Men for Action and EOC groups picketing for safe streets in the Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood. Also includes an interview with Adam Rogers who states they are expressing community support for a white family and sorrow for "senseless violence." He goes on to explain that: "We have a lot of white citizens in our community too see and we wanna let them know that we also want to work with them you know. They don't have to be afraid because there's quite a few young people in this area would just love to work with them, if they'd just come on out." When Davis asks a white resident if he feels "more frightened" living in the neighborhood he replies: "Well, I feel just as safe on this street as any other street in San Francisco. None of them are very safe and you know it as well as I do."
