According to Alameda County Community Food Bank, one in five Alameda County residents rely on the donations provided at the food bank - roughly 50,000 people per week. You can help end hunger in Alameda County by donating a can of tuna, a jar of peanut butter or other nonperishable food item at the Jingle Tails Holiday Event.

This year's much anticipated ZooLights will feature larger-than-life, energy-efficient LED light displays and holiday music at more than 120 animal structures. Thanks to ZooLights' green technology, you can enjoy the festivities and the light displays that mirror the Oakland Zoo's year-round animal residents.

I look forward to seeing you during this fun-filled evening to help end hunger in California. For more information, go to my website.

Please RSVP and don't forget to bring your donation to the event.

Filipino American History Month and
4th Annual Larry Itliong Day Celebration!

Please join me on Saturday, October 27 in celebration of Larry Itliong Day in California. Larry Itliong was one of the greatest labor organizers and leaders in California history. He was a hero not only to the Filipino American community, but for all Californians and Americans who fought and continue to fight for socioeconomic and racial justice in our state and nation. Itliong played a vital role in the California Farmworker Movement. His work has inspired many for generations.

In addition to food and refreshments, we will show a screening of the documentary, Delano Manongs, offer Filipino cultural performances, and host an expert panel discussion highlighting and commemorating the inspirational life and legacy of Larry Itliong. Community partners will also be in attendance to share resources and information.

Through legislation I authored, Larry Itliong Day is now officially recognized each October 25th. In addition, the story of the Filipino contributions to the farmworker movement will now be included in our school curriculum so future generations will know this important story of our history.
