Telegraph for People is a student organization at UC Berkeley fighting for safe and vibrant streets for people in our city.

Our flagship priority is making Telegraph Avenue car-free near the UC Berkeley campus (on 3 blocks from Haste to Bancroft). We want to create a vibrant public realm, more space and safety for pedestrians and cyclists, faster and more reliable buses, and revitalized small businesses.

We take an all-of-the-above approach to organizing and believe that students have the power to make real change in Berkeley if we organize and fight for our needs.
