Cleaner Energy Coming This Spring

The City of San Francisco is partnering with PG&E to deliver cleaner energy through CleanPowerSF, San Francisco’s Community Choice Clean Energy Program. PG&E continues to maintain the power grid, troubleshoot outages and send you a monthly bill; but with CleanPowerSF you get cleaner energy at competitive prices.

CleanPowerSF’s Green product will generate about 35% of your electricity from clean, renewable sources. The SFPUC will also offer SuperGreen – 100% renewable energy – for a slight premium. CleanPowerSF will be administered by the clean energy experts at the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.

Would you like the SFPUC to present about CleanPowerSF at your neighborhood or business association meeting? Email at cleanpowersf@sfwater.org.

A&F 2

Alive & Free – Omega Boys Club celebrated its 29th birthday on February 26th! We are so grateful to be able to continue the work of encouraging our young people to think critically about the way they live their lives.

In this newsletter, we bring you stories from two of our alumni who are shining examples of our core motto “The More You Know, The More You Owe!”


Ashley Blanco Becomes a Published Author

Dr M and author

Ashley Blanco is inspiring people wherever she goes with her new book, Liberated Through the Love of Christ.  She is an Alive & Free alumni who graduated first from Howard University with her B.S. in Psychology, then from Brown University with her Masters in Urban Education. She continues to inspire us with her accomplishments!

“Ashley is great. She’s just so wonderful. I remember when she started coming to the Club.  Her speaking voice was so small and tiny I thought she might get overwhelmed, especially when she went off to college.  Boy was I wrong.  She didn’t get overwhelmed, she overwhelmed others with the power, clarity and truth of her words,” says Dr. Marshall reminiscing about her first days at the Club.

Corey Monroe Awarded for Improving Our Communities 


Corey Monroe has been a leader his whole life.  He was one of our first Club members, and he has continued to improve the community with his honesty and genuine desire to inspire young people to think about their futures. The San Francisco District Attorney’s Office honored him with the Community Wellness Award during its Black History Month Ceremony this year.  We are very proud to see him continuing the necessary work it takes to keep our community Alive & Free!

“One of my worst nights at Omega was the night Corey and Omar were shot leaving the Club’s Tuesday night meeting years ago,” recalls Dr. Marshall. “I vividly remember going to the hospital to see him.  It was horrible.  He was ok, but I also knew that this was going to be a real test for the Club.  We had been teaching and preaching stop the violence at Club meetings and Corey was one of our best disciples.   But this was real life -and the violence had happened to him.  How would he react, I wondered?  Could he practice what he preached? Would he retaliate?

Man let me tell you, I should’ve never worried.  He passed with flying colors.  As much as anybody at Omega, Corey put us on the map.  He legitimized everything we were talking about…and he’s still doing it. Thank you Corey, we love you! Congratulations on the award, you deserve it!”
