News & Announcements

  • 05/09/2017  My Word: Immigrants not seeking medical care is a public health issue  Community health and wellness rely on people feeling safe when accessing care and services. When residents feel safe, they proactively engage in all efforts to keep their families and communities healthy. Sickness and disease do not distinguish between those with or without documents. That is why we stand against anything that presses members in our community to make the false choice between the risk of deportation and health. When a significant portion of our community avoids health care, the fragile barrier between illness and wellness is easily breached.
  • 02/28/2017  New Alameda County website launched to fight Obamacare repeal  Alameda County launched a new website, www.FightForMediCal.org, to educate residents about how their health care benefits would be hurt by Trump administration proposals to repeal the Affordable Care Act, take action, and share their story about how the ACA has helped them.
  • 01/25/2017  My Word: Must work together to eliminate lead poisoning  Lead levels in our children rival that of Flint, Mich. Though unlike Flint, exposure in Oakland comes from the impacts of lead-based paint. With 5,000 children under the age of 6 living in the Fruitvale, and many more citywide at risk, we need to take quick action. In this article, I suggest five immediate steps on which the city, county, and state, working with residents, can collaborate.
  • 01/24/2017  Alameda County Arts Commisson Seeks Community Input for Community Identifier Projects in San Lorenzo, Castro Valley, and Ashland/Cherryland  The Alameda County Arts Commission invites community members in Castro Valley, San Lorenzo, & Ashland/Cherryland to participate in two upcoming opportunities related to the Community Identifier Projects. The completed Community Identifier Projects will result in hand-painted signs on the fronts of freeway overpasses featuring the name of each community along with other simple design elements. The goal is to create community gateway markers that support a positive and welcoming environment for both the community and visitors. Community members are encouraged to participate in a Community Survey & to submit an Interest Form to serve on an Artist Selection Committee. Response deadline is January 31, 2017. Click this link for project details and the online Community survey. An Artist Selection Committee Response Form is available at http://tinyurl.com/zka9nnk. For more information, contact artscommission@acgov.org or (510) 208-9646.
