On January 7, 2014, San Francisco Board of Supervisors President David Chiu honored Isabel Huie, the 84-year-old activist who was fatally struck by a car late last year in Chinatown. Partner Mark Fong is the Huie family’s attorney.
Huie, who last worked with Friends of Educational Opportunities to support the Chinatown/North Beach City College of San Francisco campus, was hit Dec. 19 by another senior who lost control of a vehicle on Jackson Street between Powell and Stockton streets.
“It really does seem like almost an epidemic with the number of especially elderly, Asian pedestrians getting hit and killed,” said Mark, who was quoted in a San Francisco Examiner story by Jessica Kwong. “My firm represents many Asian folks and put out a lot of pedestrian safety seminars to try to address that.”
Mark has given presentations on pedestrian safety at senior centers and community service agencies in San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose. During the presentation, he describes to seniors the risk of pedestrian injury, provides tips on how to reduce risks and distributes brochures published by Minami Tamaki in Chinese and English to aid them in remembering the information.
