10/03/2018 Food is a basic human right and a major driver of Californias economy. And yet, the current food system produces low wages and hunger, and is a major contributor to climate change and other major environmental issues. Hear your future State Assemblymember, Jovanka Beckles or Buffy Wicks, address these important topics at a candidate forum on food in Californias 15th Assembly District. Learn about the candidates perspectives on the intersectional topics that impact our work and lives, like access to healthy food, food workers rights, and agricultures impact on the environment.

Food in the 15th will be moderated by Nina Ichikawa, Policy Director of the Berkeley Food Institue, with prepared questions from the events hosts, followed by moderated questions from the audience.

Feeling stressed? Hear from local experts about practices that can help connect you to nature and bring you into better balance. Recent scientific studies confirm the medical, health and well-being results of being in nature. Two practitioners will share their earth-based wellness practices. Hana Lee Goldin, is a certified forest therapy guide and founder of The Sacred Wilds. She conducts forest bathing experiences at the UC Botanical Garden, celebrating the restorative power of nature. Pete Guinossa (E-RYT), a well-loved bay area yoga instructor, offers a wide range of yoga adventures, including yoga wilderness retreats. Drawing from his years as a scientist, Pete approaches practice with curiosity and wonder, helping students connect with their hearts.
Well round out the evening with Bob Solotar, Hiking Section Chair of the Sierra Clubs SF Bay Chapter. He will offer his experiences and direct us to many local hiking experiences appropriate to all levels. Bring: An earth-friendly, plastic-free snack to share at 6:30 pm if you like!

10/25/2018 Free Public Forum: Toward a NEW US FOREIGN POLICY

In this forum, two leading experts on international relations will explore several questions that Bernie Sanders failed to address during his primary campaign: What would a progressive US foreign policy look like? How could it encourage other nations to pursue self-determination, stability, peace, justice, and environmental sustainability? What measures would be most likely to gain international support and friendship for the United States? And how can progressives incorporate these goals into our expanding movement for social and economic change? The speakers will address the failures of past and current US foreign policy and develop a contrasting vision of a future that we should be working to realize now.

SPEAKERS:

Reese Erlich, best-selling author and award-winning freelance journalist; radio documentary producer and commentator; author of The Iran Agenda Today: the Real Story from Inside Iran and Whats Wrong with U.S. Policy (2018)

Phyllis Bennis (speaking via Skype), scholar and activist; director of the New Internationalism Project; founding member of the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation; author of Understanding ISIS and the New Global War on Terror: A Primer (2015)
