The Back to School Backpack Drive was a huge success! It was truly heartening to witness the joy on the faces of the children as they eagerly prepared for the upcoming school year. The campus was bustling with excitement as families gathered to pick up essential supplies that will undoubtedly help create better opportunities for them for the new school year. Our sincere thanks go to the Logan Memorial Education Campus for graciously hosting this event, and we extend our gratitude to our generous sponsors who played a crucial role in making this drive possible. Your support has a lasting impact on these students' educational journeys.
I want to express my gratitude to the UC Berkeley Terner Center for Housing Innovation for organizing and hosting an exceptional symposium. It was an honor to be part of the Policymaker Panel alongside esteemed colleagues from the California Legislature – Assemblymember Buffy Wicks, Senator Catherine Blakespear, and Senator Scott Wiener. Our insightful and productive discussion, moderated by Liam Dillion, delved deep into the pressing issue of housing. As we explored innovative housing policies and robust collaborations, I'm hopeful that our dialogue will contribute to the ongoing effort to navigate the housing crisis in our state. My two housing bills are scheduled to be heard next xxx.
I had the privilege of joining my team in attending National Night Out! It was great to come together with our neighbors and establish meaningful connections with our local law enforcement. I hope that you and your neighbors also had the chance to partake in the festivities within your own neighborhoods or at any of the community-wide events. It was heartening to witness the collective effort to strengthen the bonds that make our community a safe and vibrant place to live. As we continue to work towards fostering unity and positivity let's look forward to more opportunities to come together.
I want to extend a heartfelt and enormous thank you to the remarkable team at Chiroy's CAFE for their warm hospitality in hosting our coffee gathering earlier in the month. It was truly heartwarming to see the space bustling with the energy of our amazing community members who joined us. Your presence and engagement resonate deeply with me, and your insights and stories serve as a guiding light as we collaborate to tackle the most largest issues that our community faces. These conversations are significant steps towards driving positive change. Your willingness to share your experiences, concerns, and ideas reinforces the connection we share as a community. It's this collaborative spirit that fuels our collective journey towards a brighter future.
