After making “Skateboard Mom and the Sisters of Shred”  as part of our nonprofit video production services for AARP in October, Doug and I were eager to get to San Francisco for another off-the-wall, inspirational story — Real Life Superhero, anyone?

We arrived Tuesday morning at Roxanne Cai’s house near San Francisco. She’s a massage therapist, a wife, and a mom. But she’s also a former bouncer, an avid motorcyclist, and a singer in a band (“The Filthy Mudbloods”). Most importantly, for us, Roxanne co-founded the California Initiative back in 2011. The group promotes community safety in San Francisco—all the while dressed as real life superheroes. Her nom de super héro: “Rock N Roll.”

I was a little skeptical at first, but Rock N Roll’s results speak for themselves. From weekly patrols picking up drug needles in the back alleys of the Mission District to pop-up Street Boutiques of donated clothing for the homeless, Roxanne and her crew are making the community a better place—one good deed at a time.

We’re writing and editing the short film now. Come back soon to check it out!
