J. Walcher Communications, a San Diego public relations and marketing agency, has been hired by Circulate San Diego to develop a 2017 media campaign project around the need for improvements to San Diego’s most dangerous intersections.
Circulate San Diego is a regional nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing mobility and making the region a better place to move, work, learn and play. The organization focuses on creating great mobility choices, more walkable and bikeable neighborhoods, and land uses that promote sustainable growth.
J. Walcher Communications will support Circulate San Diego’s media relations and planning efforts for its “Fatal Fifteen” campaign, an initiative to urge the city to fund improvements at the 15 most dangerous intersections in San Diego that will make streets safer for people walking and biking. The campaign was launched at a Feb. 1 press conference at University and Marlborough Avenues in City Heights – one of the deadliest of the “Fatal Fifteen” – with Councilmembers Georgette Gómez and Chris Ward, and more than a dozen local media in attendance.
The campaign supports Circulate San Diego’s Vision Zero plan, an effort to end all traffic fatalities and serious injuries in the City of San Diego by 2025. For more information, visit www.circulatesd.org/fatal15sd.
