Southside Forward

We want the Southside of San Francisco to be a welcoming community where everyone can thrive.

We are a group of Southside neighbors who advocate for more housing

We are residents of Ocean View, Merced Heights, and Ingleside (OMI). We’re a mix of long-time residents and newcomers, renters and homeowners, business owners and employees, families and individuals, citizens and immigrants, commuters, bus riders, cyclists and pedestrians.

We want a more affordable and sustainable Southside of San Francisco

We see friends, family, and coworkers priced out of our area. We see sprawl consume acres of wilderness and increase the number of cars on the road. And we see an alternative. We want OMI to be an affordable and inclusive community. We can make OMI a place with homes for all, and where you don’t have to have a car to get around.
