2

With regular mindfulness meditation practice, there are well-documented benefits to mental and physical health and spiritual well-being, including relief from symptoms of stress and a greater capacity be compassionate. When making time to practice in a safe and quiet place, being still, and turning attention inward, the mind can more easily become aware of present moment experience. This is where habitual patterns of thinking and behavior can be noticed, presenting an opportunity for change in ways that may improve one’s health and promote peace for oneself and for the world. The meditation will be led by Mary Costello who practices meditation with the Insight and Zen communities in San Francisco. She has a graduate degree in Integrative Health and professional training in both Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction and in mindfulness facilitation. There are free, weekly, 30-minute meditation sessions. Each will begin with a 10-minute guided meditation, followed by a 20-minute silent meditation.

SFMTA Board Approves Dogpatch Parking Project

2

Dogpatch Parking Plan

On April 17, the SFMTA Board voted unanimously in favor of the Dogpatch 

Parking Management Plan. The Board was gratified to see a lot of support at the hearing from Dogpatch residents, businesses, and other stakeholders, which doesn’t always happen wit h new parking regulations.

With more building developments and commerce in the area, parking spots are already scarce during the day – and bigger developments are on the horizon. As activity in Dogpatch grows, on-street parking regulations must be updated to help ensure that parking spaces can be used efficiently and made available for those who need them most. When parking spaces are left unregulated despite high demand, they tend to stay occupied, which leaves drivers circling for a spot. That adds to traffic congestion and transit delays, and it makes streets less safe and pleasant for people who live in, work in and visit the neighborhood.

The agency estimates the signs and meters will start being installed in late summer.

Free Legal Assistance for Immigration & Low-Income

Immigration

The California Department of Social Services and the State Bar of California funds qualified nonprofit organizations to provide services to immigrants who reside in the state of California. Immigration services include the following five service categories:

  1. Services to Assist Applicants seeking Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)
  2. Services to Obtain Other Immigration
  3. Services to Assist Applicants seeking Naturalization
  4. Legal Training and Technical Assistance Services
  5. Education and Outreach Activities

Use cdss.ca.gov to obtain a list of local nonprofit agencies. People residing outside California can use Administrative Relief to find assistance.

Low-Income

The Legal Services Trust Fund Program of The State Bar of California administers three funds: Interest on Lawyers’ Trust Accounts (IOLTA), the state Equal Access Fund (EAF) and the Justice Gap Fund. Eligible nonprofit organizations provide free civil legal services to low-income Californians, provided by licensed attorneys or other supervised by licensed attorneys. Visit LawHelpCA.org for a list of nonprofit groups.

Note: Do not seek legal aide from solicitors or people not authorized to practice law.

FREE: GLBT History Museum Day on Harvey Milk Day

Tuesday, May 22nd, 11:00 am – 6:00 pm

GLBT History Museum (4127 18th St)

The State of California annually marks Harvey Milk’s birthday, May 22, as a statewide day of significance. The GLBT History Museum will honor the occasion this year by offering free admission to all visitors throughout the day.

Courtesy SF Examiner Archives

Harvey Milk (1930-1978) was the first openly gay elected official in California and one of the first in the United States. He served on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors for 11 months before he and San Francisco Mayor George Moscone were shot to death on November 27, 1978, by Dan White, a former board colleague of Milk’s. The GLBT History Museum commemorates Harvey Milk on an ongoing basis in a number of ways.

“Queer Past Becomes Present,” the long-term exhibition in the museum’s Main Gallery, includes a display on Milk’s life and death. Among the historical objects exhibited are a “Harvey Milk for Supervisor” t-shirt from Milk’s own wardrobe, as well as the suit he was wearing at the moment he was assassinated. Visitors also can hear Milk’s voice in the political will he recorded just days before his death.

In addition, the museum shop offers a reproduction of a t-shirt produced by the committee that raised funds to defend protesters arrested during the White Night Riot, an uprising that took place at San Francisco City Hall in 1979 after a jury found Dan White guilty of manslaughter instead of murder in the killings of Milk and Moscone. Also available are reproductions of Milk’s 1977 campaign t-shirt, as well as postcards of photographs of Milk.

Reserve your free ticket at Eventbrite.com. For more information on the museum, go to glbthistory.org/museum.

San Francisco’s Camp Congress for Girls

Saturday, June 9th, 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

Residence Inn SFO/Oyster Point (1350 Veterans Blvd, SSF)

Camp Congress for Girls San Francisco 2018 is a leadership program that introduces girls ages 10 to 15 to politics. Camp begins with a lesson on the structure of our political system. Each girl will choose to run for a seat in the US House of Representatives, the US Senate or for the presidency. She will create her own campaign with a platform, campaign slogan, campaign finance plan, campaign marketing materials and a political ad. All campers will register to vote and then vote in an election. Once elected to Congress and sworn in, the newly installed members of Congress will learn how to introduce a bill, debate the merits of the bill, lobby fellow legislators, collaborate with the Executive branch and finally vote on the proposed bill. Camp will culminate with a ceremonial signing of the bill by our Ms. President.

Girl Scouts participating in Camp Congress for Girls will receive a Citizen Legacy badge upon completion of the program. The general camp fee is $160, the Girl Scout registration fee is $160, the military family registration fee is $120 and the group registration fee is $120 per ticket for any ticket purchase of 5 or more. The registration fee includes program materials and lunch, and no refunds will be given for registration fees unless the organizer cancels the session. For additional information, visit girlsinpolitics.org or our Eventbrite page.
