Since 1997, we have represented the growing population of residents in DTSJ. We advocate for an economically strong and socially vibrant Downtown that remains inclusive for people from all walks of life.  


Our Mission

To provide a voice for a diverse socioeconomic group of residents of the Downtown San Jose core, to promote partnerships with City Government and neighborhood businesses by participating in policy-shaping and planning processes, and to educate residents about neighborhood issues.

Thanks to the San Jose Downtown Residents Association’s partnership, we have successfully activated St. James Park and the Downtown community”
