Claudia Contreras started this petition to Community of Isla Vista

Walking the streets of Isla Vista during the day is a piece of cake, but during the night it is a whole different story. There are many spots in Isla Vista, specifically down Embarcadero del Mar, that are not very well lit. This makes walking alone at night, especially as a woman, quite scary. While the streets are usually filled with people on the weekends, making walking in the dark not as frightening, there are not as many people out during the weekdays. Not only do the dark streets make it easier for people to attack students and residents that are walking through, but also if something were to happen there is no guarantee that there would be anyone around to stop or witness the act. I always have to make sure to be extra aware of my surroundings while I walk down that street. As a woman I know that this is something I'll have to deal with for the rest of my life, but there is no reason that I or any of the other women or femmes that live in this neighborhood should have to feel more unsafe than we already do on a regular basis. I request that the community of Isla Vista install more lamp posts throughout the streets of IV. I think that the installation of more lamp posts in spots of the neighborhood where there is not as much light would make a lot of people feel a little more at ease while walking around at night. With this petition I hope to reach the community of Isla Vista so that my fellow students and residents can walk around with a little more peace at mind.
