Mindfulness Meditation Sessions: Free Every Tuesdays

7:00 pm; St. Cyprian’s Church, 2097 Turk @ Lyon

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.

7Bayview Community Based Transportation Plan
Join the Steering Committee and Help Your Community Direct $600,000
in Bayview Transportation Funding

The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) has secured $600,000 to improve transit and transit access for the Bayview’s residents. These funds could be spent on infrastructure, such as new bus stops and improved routes to transit, or on programs, like a community shuttle or more frequent MUNI service. To decide on how to spend these new funds, the SFMTA is launching a participatory budgeting exercise. Through participatory budgeting, community members work together to come up with ideas, develop them into proposals and vote on where the money will go.
The SFMTA is seeking interested members of the Bayview community to serve on our Steering Committee, which will decide on the rules of the participatory budgeting process, which projects are eligible for voting and funding, and how the overall process is run in the community.  The SFMTA wants there to be no barriers to participation in the Steering Committee. The agency will be offering compensation for community members willing to dedicate their time to this effort. Women, people of color, seniors, youth, and people with low incomes are especially encouraged to apply.
Please fill out our quick application or contact
Christopher Kidd at christopher.kidd@sfmta.com or (415) 646.2852 to get more information.

Neighborfest
August 4 to November 3
District 10
Neighborfest is right around the corner!
Starting August 4th and going through November 3rd, the  Neighborhood Empowerment Network (GSA) is supporting residents in your district as they create intimate block parties. Just as the late Mayor Ed Lee learned when he went to New Orleans to learn about their recovery, when neighbors know neighbors, their community is more resilient. And that is just what Neighborfest is designed to do, help neighbors meet neighbors. Then we take our Neighborfest table with map of the host’s neighborhood and talk to them about emergency preparedness and resources the City offers to help prepare residents for disasters.
Starting in August there are 10 planned block parties (they still have to go through the ISCOTT process but we expect they’ll be approved) in your district. Here are the details of the block parties (the hours are subject to change by the hosts).
Come out to the Neighborfests in your district and help us build more resilient communities.

JUNE 2018 NEWSLETTER

Keeping San Francisco’s District 10 affordable, working, healthy, and safe!

Statement on the Hunters Point Shipyard

For decades, the Bayview Hunters Point community has lived with the fear that their health and safety are at risk as a result of toxic waste left at the Shipyard by the Navy. More recently, fraudulent soil testing by cleanup contractor Tetra Tech, a billion-dollar corporation that received hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars, have added to those fears.

Let me be clear: my primary goals are to protect the health of my constituents and hold both the Navy and Tetra Tech fully responsible for their actions. This includes demanding that they test Parcel A and retest Parcel G in its entirety.

1

 

These acts of environmental injustice are unacceptable. Our community has suffered for long enough and deserves better.

It’s time to stop protecting the bad behavior of Tetra Tech and protect the health of the people.

If you missed it, check out my interview with KTVU last month where I discussed the Hunters Point Shipyard cleanup.


Key Information for June 5th Primary Election

June 2 & 3 – Weekend voting at the City Hall Voting Center from 10 am to 4 pm. Due to the weekend-long Clusterfest event in Civic Center, voters must enter City Hall on Grove Street. We encourage you to use public transit.

June 5 – Polling places, the City Hall Voting Center, and Vote-by-Mail ballot drop-off stations are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Find your polling location at sfelections.org.

8:00 p.m. – Polling locations close/Deadline for ballots. Voters actively waiting in line at 8:00 pm will be allowed to cast their ballot. Anyone that arrives after 8:00 pm are ineligible to vote. Voters are not permitted to “hold” or “reserve” a spot in line for others.

Ballot Selfies Are Legal with Limitations – As of January 1, 2017, it is legal in California to “voluntarily disclose” how you vote by sharing photos of your ballot on social media (“ballot selfie”) as long as you do not violate any other law. It is a felony to interfere with the voting process, intimidate a voter or election worker, and compromise the privacy of other voters. It’s advised to speak with an election official before taking a selfie.

Coming of Age Black and Free in America with Darnell Moore

Wednesday, June 13th, 6:30 pm

INFORUM (110 The Embarcadero)

6In association with San Francisco Pride, join INFORUM for Pride Month and a conversation about the intersectionality of faith, sexuality, blackness and gender with author Darnell L. Moore, as he discusses his new memoir, No

Ashes in the Fire: Coming of Age Black and Free in America. This will be an empowering and insightful evening that you won’t want to miss, moderated by Hana Baba and Leila Day, hosts of “The Stoop” podcast.

Darnell L. Moore is regarded as “one of the most influential black writers and thinkers of our time,”  centering his work largely around the topics of liberation, the topics of liberation, self-love and tolerance. Moore is an embodiment of resilience, having endured traumas such as narrowly escaping being burned alive at 14 years old by homophobic neighborhood children, suffering a near-fatal heart attack at 19 years old, and enduring poverty and brutality in his childhood home.

Today, Moore is an award-winning writer and activist, a leader in the Black Lives Matter movement and a champion of justice. His writing centers around anti-racist, feminist, pro-queer of color and anti-colonial thought and has taken him to The Huffington Post, Ebony Magazine and many other publications. Moore is also a renowned scholar in black Christian thought and has spoken at Harvard Divinity School and been a visiting scholar at the Yale Divinity School and Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality at New York University.

Stacey Abrams: Leading from the Minority

Wednesday, June 27th, 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

The Commonwealth Club (110 The Embarcadero)

It’s almost a cliché: it’s good to be different. However, it’s hard to believe this when there are a plethora of experiences and challenges that hinder anyone who exists beyond the structure of traditional power. But today, there are women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community and millennials in the world who are ready to make a difference. 7

Stacey Abrams, Former Georgia House minority leader and candidate for governor of Georgia, wants to show everyone that there is truth in the cliché and value in the struggle against traditional power structures. In her new book, Minority Leader: How to Lead from the Outside and Make Real Change, Abrams emphasizes the importance of knowing your own passion, regardless of the scale or target. She discusses personal stories about launching a company, starting a daycare center for homeless teen moms and running a successful political campaign to show how ambition, fear, money, and failure function in leadership.

Abrams is the Democratic nominee in the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election, and is the first black female major party gubernatorial nominee in the United States.

Join this special conversation about how being in the minority can provide unique and vital strength! Get your tickets at commonwealthclub.org.

Coming of Age Black and Free in America with Darnell Moore

Wednesday, June 13th, 6:30 pm

INFORUM (110 The Embarcadero)

In association with San Francisco Pride, join INFORUM for Pride Month and a conversation about the intersectionality of faith, sexuality, blackness and gender with author Darnell L. Moore, as he discusses his new memoir, No

Ashes in the Fire: Coming of Age Black and Free in America. This will be an empowering and insightful evening that you won’t want to miss, moderated by Hana Baba and Leila Day, hosts of “The Stoop” podcast.

Darnell L. Moore is regarded as “one of the most influential black writers and thinkers of our time,”  centering his work largely around the topics of liberation, the topics of liberation, self-love and tolerance. Moore is an embodiment of resilience, having endured traumas such as narrowly escaping being burned alive at 14 years old by homophobic neighborhood children, suffering a near-fatal heart attack at 19 years old, and enduring poverty and brutality in his childhood home.

Today, Moore is an award-winning writer and activist, a leader in the Black Lives Matter movement and a champion of justice. His writing centers around anti-racist, feminist, pro-queer of color and anti-colonial thought and has taken him to The Huffington Post, Ebony Magazine and many other publications. Moore is also a renowned scholar in black Christian thought and has spoken at Harvard Divinity School and been a visiting scholar at the Yale Divinity School and Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality at New York University.

Stacey Abrams: Leading from the Minority

Wednesday, June 27th, 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

The Commonwealth Club (110 The Embarcadero)

It’s almost a cliché: it’s good to be different. However, it’s hard to believe this when there are a plethora of experiences and challenges that hinder anyone who exists beyond the structure of traditional power. But today, there

are women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community and millennials in the world who are ready to make a difference.

Stacey Abrams, Former Georgia House minority leader and candidate for governor of Georgia, wants to show everyone that there is truth in the cliché and value in the struggle against traditional power structures. In her new book, Minority Leader: How to Lead from the Outside and Make Real Change, Abrams emphasizes the importance of knowing your own passion, regardless of the scale or target. She discusses personal stories about launching a company, starting a daycare center for homeless teen moms and running a successful political campaign to show how ambition, fear, money, and failure function in leadership.

Abrams is the Democratic nominee in the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial election, and is the first black female major party gubernatorial nominee in the United States.

Join this special conversation about how being in the minority can provide unique and vital strength! Get your tickets at commonwealthclub.org.
