02/01/2020 2/01 Elk Vigil at Bear Valley Visitor Center. 10am - 12:30pm. Join us for our next peaceful demonstration. This is an importance piece to ensure the park knows we will never back down until the elk are safe, the ranches are phased out, and we can begin the work to rewild the native prairies!
We ALWAYS need people to do outreach for us. Have an idea? If you coordinate, we are happy to support! Do you think your local library would be a good place to reach people? Do you think your local grocery store or farmers market or school would be interested? We'd love for you to take the lead on any outreach events.

Green Sunday (2/9): Let's Make the Alameda County Sheriff Accountable to the People
This talk will deal with the campaign launched by the Ella Baker Center, and also involving a variety of organizations, to audit the sheriff's budget and hold him (in this case Sheriff Ahern) accountable for using taxpayer dollars for long-term public safety solutions that can improve the health and well-being of all people. Demanding transparency with this budget can uncover potential savings to be reinvested directly into our communities.
Jose Bernal is the Organizing Manager at the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights. Jose comes from a family of first generation immigrants. He grew up in San Franciscos Tenderloin neighborhood. In late 2016, Jose was unanimously appointed by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors to serve on the San Francisco Reentry Council. While on the council, Jose has been a very active force in advocating for local restorative justice policies. Currently, he serves as Co-chair of the Reentry Council's Policy & Operational Practices Subcommittee. Through grass-roots community work, Jose has previously spearheaded initiatives and campaigns to de-privatize reentry services, and to call for an end to gang injunctions. Prior to joining Ella Baker Center, Jose was charged with overseeing a shelter program for men of various diverse backgrounds who were experiencing homelessness. Jose is the lead organizer for the Audit Ahern campaign. Jose is a graduate of Stanford University's Project ReMade program, an extensive business and entrepreneurship course aimed at empowering formerly incarcerated men and women.

Green Sundays are a series of free public programs & discussions on topics "du jour" sponsored by the Green Party of Alameda County and held on the 2nd Sunday of each month.

Elk Grove Film Screening: THE ANSWER

The Answer tells the powerful true story of an American, James Donald Walters. The film portrays his youthful quest for truth which took him from his birthplace (1926) in Romania to Hollywood, California (1948) where he meets and is accepted as a disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda, the great Indian Master, author of Autobiography of a Yogi. This is the story of an amazing spiritual journey. It is a metaphor for the spiritual journey of each and every one of us.

South San Francisco Film Screening: COWSPIRACY

Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following intrepid filmmaker Kip Andersen as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today  and investigates why the worlds leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it.

Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption and pollution is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry, and is a primary driver of rainforest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, ocean dead zones, and virtually every other environmental ill. Yet it goes on, almost entirely unchallenged.

Chase Bank
14th St. and Broadway Oakland
Stop the Money Pipeline, February 28
We see the dollar sign fully visible in the flames. JPMorgan Chase is one of the biggest financial culprits. Here's how we make them stop.
JPMorgan Chase is by far the biggest funder of the fossil fuel industry worldwide, and the only U.S. funder of the Jordan Cove Pipeline. In the three years since the Paris Agreement, JPMorgan Chase has provided the fossil fuel industry with $196 billion in financing. Chase is the #1 banker of arctic oil and gas drilling, the #1 banker of ultra-deepwater oil and gas drilling, the #1 banker of LNG, the #1 U.S. banker of coal mining, and the #2 banker of fracking (right behind Wells Fargo).
To compound the pain, in 2008 JPMorgan Chase received one of the largest bailouts ($25 Billion) from the U.S. government, using that moneytaxpayers money!to fund fossil fuel development that could have gone instead to renewable energy.

Taste of the Himalayas at Everest Kitchen
Hosted by Bay Area Vegan Food Lovers - Brad
Everest Kitchen 1150 Solano Ave Albany, CA 94706
My family and I've eaten here a number of times and always enjoyed our meals. The cuisine is more like Indian than anything else, but there are some notable exceptions - for example dumplings ( veg. momo) and noodle dishes (a Himalayan version of veg. chow mein). Their menu will also accommodate a vegan palate with dishes like tofu saag and chana masala.
