WH AT IT ME A NS TO BE A DEMOCR AT TODAY will increase; and Medicaid will be gutted. Quite simply, (TrumpCare) is deadly.” (Source: Email Nancy Pelosi, 05.24.17)


Hilbert Morales EL OBSERVADOR The Trump Administration's proposed 2018 budget cuts cripple many programs which take care of people while enabling the top 1% and corporations to continue to concentrate wealth in their 'silos'. This opinion piece is fashioned after the speech delivered by former VP Joe Biden to the 2016 National Democratic Convention. I highly recommend EO readers to go to that speech to understand the basic ideological differences between Democrats (liberals) and Republicans (conservatives). Democratic Party Leader Senator Nancy Pelosi (San Francisco) communicated: “The Affordable Care Act made a permanent appropriation of Cost Sharing Reduction payments, along with Advance Premium Tax Credits, to reduce health premiums and out of pocket costs for millions of America’s hard-working families. From the beginning, the Republican House’s deeply cynical lawsuit was an effort to dismantle the health coverage of millions of Americans.” (Source: Democratic Leader, 05.18.17) Democratic Party Leader also added: The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) reports that 'TrumpCare is very destructive: 23 million will lose their health insurance. In 2026, 51 million people under age 65 would be uninsured. 6 million will be punished for having preexisting conditions; essential health benefits will be destroyed; the premiums of older Americans

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) which enforces a multitude of job site safety standards and regulations is being undermined drastically. Regulations addressing work site safety are supported by Democrats. Ultra-conservative Republicans (Tea Party) want OSHA to be defunded even more as an outcome of their ultra-conservative ideology, initiated by the Reagan Administration, which declared that 'the problem Americans face is government which is too big, small government is much better'. Democrats favor and support 'federal agencies appropriately staffed' with trained enforcement personnel to both monitor and enforce OSHA's regulations. An outcome is fewer deaths on the job and fewer worker injuries... what's wrong with that? Regarding support for the nation's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)...the Trump Administration has issued executive orders which remove standards needed to eliminate global climate change and to meet the proposed efforts of the Paris Accord Conference endorsed by some 200 nations. Clean air and potable water are endangered; scientific data regarding global warming trends are ignored. “President Trump’s proposed 2018 budget is a full-scale attack on America’s most fundamental health and safety protections. It would gut our ability to keep our air and water clean, and would put the health of all Americans at risk,” statement of Fred Krupp, president, Environmental Defense Fund (EDF).

Humane Comprehensive Immigration Reform is being neglected; Trump Administration's approach is to deport all 11 million undocumented immigrants. Many are law-abiding long term residents; gainfully employed and the primary support of their families whose kids are American citizens with fundamental birthrights. Comprehensive IRS tax reform crafted to rectify extreme wealth distribution disparities continues to be neglected. Republican tax proposals continue to provide significant tax benefits for the top 1% (super-wealthy); No relief for the middle class (100 million taxpayers). Democrats support voting rights of all citizens without gerrymandering precincts which nullify the influence of those voters who are persons of color or the working poor. Republicans favor photo I.D.'s; limit polling sites; have implemented a variety of actions all of which increase increase barriers to voting. Democrats favor investment which improves and upgrades the nation's infrastructure (roads, bridges, harbors, river ways, canals, airports, air traffic control systems, etc.) Republicans tend to let local jurisdictions repair local roads; neglect interstate highways. Local jurisdictions passed Measure B to ensure BART projects are funded and local road's potholes get repaired. The funding is based on a sales tax increase...a regressive tax since middle class folks are the ones who will pay the greater amount of 'sales taxes'; corporations have tax avoidance loopholes which will not be plugged during any Republican Administration. Democrats favor pre-K-12 education; favor college, university

& job training; are willing to provide student loans which may be repaid by agreement to perform assigned public service in a designated disadvantaged/ marginalized community. Democrats support basic research by supporting the National Institutes of Health (NIH); National Science Foundation (NSF); Community Disease Control (CDC) where basic research increases the scientific knowledge base of America. Republican's 2018 budget cuts will cause major cut-backs in basic research (where many pre-doctoral candidates earn their Ph.D. degrees.) Democrats (Obama Administration) crafted the 2010 Affordable Care Act (also known as ObamaCare) which stabilized health care insurances in those states which participated (e.g., California). Republicans are willing to let major health insurance purveyors 'call the shots'; eliminate subsidies for those who qualify; augment the use of prior health status conditions to deny health insurance (or be used to charge higher premiums); protects high priced prescription drugs (favoring Big Pharma); will undercut the ability of parents to include their kids in their insurance policy coverage until age 26. Democrats favor retention and maintenance of national parks, oceanic preserves, national monuments. Trump immediately reversed or offshore oil explorations, relaxed restrictions on oil & natural gas explorations; approved that crude oil pipeline going from Canada down to Texan refineries. Democrats favored Health and Human Services which administered Medicare. Republican 2018 budget will result in draconian

service cuts in Medicare/Medicaid. Democrats support Social Security Administration programs which provide for the handicapped, disabled, orphans and widows; Republicans want to 'privatize' Social Security retirement programs; cut back services & support to the disabled, handicapped, orphans and widows. This nation's law-enforcementJudicial System needs to require every law enforcement organization to report each and every incident in which a weapon is discharged. Each incident must be reviewed wherein a police officer reports: “I felt that I was in harms way” or “I decided I had to defend the public”. In many jurisdictions police, who are licensed to kill when protecting themselves or the community, have simply gotten away with murder. All these incidents must be reviewed by an Independent Police Auditor panel having no conflicts of interest. Our government is not perfect. The development of 'a more perfect union' needs all citizens to get involved; and the resources of this nation needs formalized societal stewardship, not more concentrated ownership. EO's readers need to choose to be liberal Democrats or Independents rather than conservative Republicans. The role of the Independent Free Press is to present the facts and truths you need.

UNA TORMENTA PERFECTA con el requisito de llevar los chalecos salvavidas. Pero sus ocupantes optaron por no utilizarlos.

Por José López Zamorano La Red Hispana

José no pudo conocer a su primera hija, Penélope, nacida en febrero.

La trágica muerte de la joven promesa del béisbol, José Fernández, así como de dos de sus amigos, Eduardo Rivero y Emilio Jesús Macías, es un triste recordatorio de las innumerables vidas que se pierden en el mar por ignorar las reglas del sentido común, a pesar de las evidencias claras de la importancia de la seguridad del canotaje, de usar un chaleco salvavidas.

La creciente popularidad del canotaje, incluido el llamado paddle boarding, y otras actividades acuáticas recreativas ha incrementado el número de muertes en el agua durante seis años consecutivos. Toda muerte es un suceso lamentable, pero una muerte prevenible nos obliga a insistir en la importancia de acatar aquellas recomendaciones sensatas que salvan vidas y evitan tragedias innecesarias.

Si sumamos a la imprudencia de no llevar puesto el salvavidas, el consumo excesivo de alcohol, un factor adicional que nubla el juicio y la capacidad de responder con agilidad ante circunstancias imprevistas, tenemos los elementos de una tormenta perfecta, una que por desgracia deja un surco de sufrimiento duradero en incontables familias.

Ocho de cada diez muertes en el agua tienen un dramático elemento en común: Las víctimas no usaban chaleco salvavidas. Lo más paradójico y preocupante es que muchas de las embarcaciones implicadas en accidentes marítimos, sí cumplían

Pero la buena noticia es que hacer un deporte acuático o salir de paseo recreativo en lancha o bote con la familia para disfrutar la belleza de los ríos, lagos y los litorales de Estados Unidos, no tiene que ser una fatalidad. De la misma firma que

José Fernández tripulaba la embarcación a más de 65 millas por hora, de noche. Lo hacía, al igual que sus acompañantes, bajo los efectos del alcohol y, al menos dos de ellos, de la cocaína. Ninguno llevaba puesto chaleco salvavidas, de acuerdo con un reciente informe de las autoridades.

los cinturones de seguridad han salvado a millones de automovilistas de un desenlace trágico, un chaleco salvavidas es el más barato seguro de vida. Entiendo los argumentos de quienes creen que usar un chaleco salvavidas es incómodo, poco atractivo y costoso, o que no les permitirá dorarse al sol. Pero la próxima vez que tengan un remo en las manos o disfruten un paseo por el agua, piensen en las miles de madres que perdieron a un hijo, o a quienes perdió a sus hermana o hermanos, o a sus mejores amigos por una simple imprudencia. Usar un chaleco salvavidas es lo correcto, lo moral y no debe estar sujeto a discusión. Para más información visita www. laredhispana.org.

Childhood Trauma—It Happens More Than You Think years. This is believed to be largely due to coping behaviors that are often used in adolescents and adult life to manage the emotional pain and social disconnection, but can compromise health. The ACE Study is just one of many examples that demonstrate the importance of prevention and action. When prevention efforts fail, responding quickly to ensure safety and establish support is very important to the health and future of children. What You Can Do

Traumatic experiences happen—but when they happen to children, it can affect their view of the world, their sense of safety, their development, and even their longerterm physical and mental health. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), more than two-thirds of children reported at least one traumatic experience by age 16. While not every child will be traumatized from a difficult experience, some potentially traumatic events could include abuse, neglect, disaster, violence (physical, sexual and community), bullying or school violence, terrorism, war, serious illness or accident, military family–related stress, human trafficking or the sudden loss of a parent or loved one. The numbers are staggering: • One in four high school students were in a physical fight. • One in five high school students experienced bullying at school, and one in six were cyberbullied. • 54 percent of families in the United States have been affected by disaster. • 19 percent of injured and 12 percent of physically ill youth have post-traumatic stress disorder, a debilitating mental health disorder. The effects of trauma, when left untreated, can have a profound impact on a child. Some of the common responses in the aftermath include difficulty sleeping, isolation, trouble focusing, and even

angry and aggressive behavior. Imagine, then, a traumatized child trying to learn in a classroom—wanting to be alone, distracted by memories of the trauma, and possibly having intense responses to teachers and students. It is important to understand what may stem from the trauma so that behavior shifts can be linked with what happened and appropriate support can be in place. If that doesn’t happen, school performance, friendships and healthy development can be jeopardized.

While every child is different, there are some things you can do to help in the aftermath of trauma. Assuring and reassuring the child of safety will help to reduce anxiety and stress. Make sure the child knows that whatever happened isn’t his or her fault, as kids often blame themselves when something completely out of their control takes place. Being patient and listening without judgment will help the child to cope with what has happened, while giving you important insight into how the child is doing and managing what took place. And if you have concerns for your child’s well-being or he/she is not improving over time, consider seeking help from a trained professional. When needed, a mental

health professional trained in evidencebased trauma treatment can help children and families cope and move toward recovery. Ask your pediatrician, family physician, school counselor or clergy member for a referral. SAMHSA offers some practical tools that can be helpful to parents, guardians, caregivers and teachers when a child may have been traumatized—and some that are specific to the kind of traumatic exposure (e.g., mass violence, disaster and bullying). They can be found at www.samhsa.gov/ c h i l d - t r a u m a /u n d e r s t a n d i n g - c h i l d trauma. This page brings together useful information, from recognizing the signs of traumatic stress to where to find a mental health provider or other support. Children exposed to trauma may have been a target of bullying or their behaviors may make them targets of bullying. Information specific to the trauma or distress associated with bullying can be found at www.StopBullying.gov. SAMHSA also developed a free app to help prevent bullying called KnowBullying, which can be found at http://store.samhsa.gov/ apps/knowbullying. Prompt and proper intervention can help save children from some of the serious effects of childhood trauma.

When Trauma Is Left Unaddressed At times, signs that a mental health concern may be emerging go unrecognized. For some children and families, it can be difficult to reach out for help with mental health. In part, this could be because traumatic experiences can be viewed as something to get through and forget about and are not given the same level of attention as a physical injury. However, the seriousness of traumatic experiences is shifting as more and more people recognize that getting help for traumatic experiences is essential for living a healthy, productive and long life. Between 1995 and 1997, the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Study (w w w. c d c . g o v/v i o l e n c e p r e v e n t i o n / acestudy/index.html) was conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Kaiser Permanente. The study examined the effect of “adverse experiences,” such as traumas, experienced in childhood, as reported by adult patients of a large health plan. The study revealed that for people who have five or more adverse childhood experiences, their life span was shortened by approximately 25

LOS A NGELES – Veronica Tsang, Executive Vice President and Chief Retail Administrator of Cathay Bank, was presented w ith the Ellis Island Medal of Honor by the National Ethnic Coalition of Organizations (NECO) at its 31st annual ceremony held on May 13, 2017, on Ellis Island in New York. This medal recognizes indiv iduals who have made it their mission to share their wealth of knowledge, indomitable courage, boundless

compassion, unique talents, and self less generosit y w ith those less for tunate, all while maintaining the traditions of their ethnic heritage as they uphold the ideals and spirit of A merica.

“ These non-prof it organizations focus on helping new immigrants and less for tunate indiv iduals so they can live the A merican dream,” she continued. “I strongly believe it is better to g ive than to receive. Ever yone needs a little break; whatever help I can g ive might make a dif ference in someone’s life. This is one of the reasons I stay active and

involved in these organizations.” Since its founding in 1986, the Ellis Island Medal of Honor has been of f icially recognized by the House of Representatives and Senate, and each year’s recipients are read into the Congressional Record. NECO has honored such disting uished and diverse A mericans including seven U.S. presidents; Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel; Generals Norman Schwarzkopf and Colin Powell; Justice Sandra Day O’Connor; Secretaries of State Madeleine A lbright, Condoleezza Rice, and Hillar y Clinton; Bob Hope; Muhammad A li; Frank Sinatra; and Rosa Parks — all of whom have disting uished themselves through their signif icant philanthropic and humanitarian contributions to this countr y.

ENHANCE YOUR CAR WITH THESE EASY UPGRADES with a performance aftermarket air filter, which will help enhance horsepower, acceleration and torque, and may also provide better fuel economy and longer engine life. Additionally, some aftermarket air filters don't need to be changed as often as stock filters because they don't get clogged as quickly, and some you can clean yourself and put them back to use.

The automotive aftermarket industry offers plenty of options to instantly enhance your car's performance. Photo Credit: BPT

BPT Chances are you chose your current car or truck because of specific features or performance capabilities. These vary from vehicle to vehicle, and what one automobile may have, the other may lack. Thankfully, there are many ways to enhance the performance of your car or truck. According to the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA), upgrading stock parts with aftermarket versions can instantly improve your car's performance and is relatively simple to do. Many companies offer different options for your car, so do your

research and install the part that best suits your needs. Replace the air filter: An air filter helps remove dirt and particles from the air that your engine uses to burn fuel. Clean air results in better gas mileage and improved acceleration. Filters are also designed to allow the correct amount of air into the engine for optimal performance. By increasing the amount of clean air that enters your engine, you increase its air-fuel mixture, resulting in improved performance. To increase the amount of clean air entering your engine, simply replace the stock filter

Upgrade the exhaust: After improving your engine combustion with an aftermarket air filter, upgrade your car's exhaust system for better performance. If your exhaust pipe is too small for the amount of combusted air that is now exiting the cylinders, it will lead to an increase in air resistance and create back pressure. By simply replacing the stock muffler you will create better airflow. To further enhance performance, have a qualified expert installer add aftermarket headers and bigger pipes. Reduce weight: By just lowering the overall weight of a car, you will enhance its performance, especially in regard to acceleration. An easy way to reduce weight is to replace the stock wheels, which are typically made of steel, with alloy models. Alloy wheels will not only lower the weight but also enhance the look of your car. Other easy ways to reduce weight are by using ceramic brakes and running a lighter

aftermarket battery. Almost every part of your car can be replaced by an aftermarket version made of lighter material, such as carbon fiber or aluminum, so look into what part swap will give you the biggest weight savings for your buck. Switch oil: Something as simple as switching to a higher-quality aftermarket oil can enhance performance. A higher-quality oil reduces friction between the moving parts of an engine, resulting in less power needed to operate. It may also do a better job of dissipating heat, which can extend the life of your engine. Research: The aftermarket industry offers many choices to enhance the performance of your car, so be sure to research what's available. Manufacturers introduce new products annually at the SEMA Show, the leading trade show for businesses in the automotive industry. Consumers are able to connect with some of these businesses at the official SEMA Show after-party, also known as SEMA Ignited, where one-of-a-kind custom vehicle builds featuring the newest aftermarket products parade out of the convention center before making their way to the ultimate car show open to the public.

3 CORNERSTONES TO A LONGER, HEALTHIER, HAPPIER LIFE FOR YOUR PET BPT

Your pets are members of the family. They are the source of some of your best memories, they are your travel companions, your confidantes and your evening snuggle partners. You love them and you want them to live the longest, healthiest and happiest life possible. Like it is for you, achieving the healthiest, happiest life for your pet is directly tied to the cornerstones of preventive care, nutrition and exercise. To provide insight into how each of these can benefit your pet, Dr. Kurt Venator, a chief veterinary officer, offers this advice: Regular veterinary exams Your veterinarian and his/her team are the experts when it comes to the health and well-being of your pet. Prevention is a key component of regular vet visits; the earlier a potential problem is identified, the easier it is to treat and the greater the chance of success. The physical examination, routine diagnostics, vaccinations, heartworm prevention and parasite control will help keep your pet in tip-top shape. You can also work with your veterinarian to create a tailored health plan for your pet that takes into account their age, activity level and any medical considerations. Nutrition In a recent Purina survey, three in five dog and cat owners (60 percent) would consult their veterinarian for food safety and quality advice, while just about half refer to their pet food companies’ websites. Furthermore, when it comes to nutrition, it is important to work with your veterinarian to select the ideal diet for your pet that is appropriate for their life stage (i.e., puppy vs. adult) and lifestyle (couch potato vs. sporting dog). It is also important to look beyond just the ingredient list and

marketing claims on the bag. The nutrients inside should also meet or exceed AAFCO, USDA and FDA standards. Many pet owners are unaware of the rigorous process that goes into ensuring quality and safety in pet food, with three in five pet owners admitting they didn’t know about the process after learning more about what goes into the pet food quality-checking process. For pet owners, it’s also important to take the time to look at the company’s manufacturing reputation, along with safety and quality standards. Ask these key questions when evaluating different pet foods: * Who formulates the food and what are their credentials? Look for brands with nutritionists and veterinarians on staff to formulate the diets. * What are the company’s quality and safety standards? Purina conducts more than 30,000 quality checks involving ingredients, packaging, receiving, processing and packing in a typical 24-hour production period.

5 NUTRITIONIST TIPS TO START EATING Simple ideas to get in shape for summer BPT 4) Avoid late night snacking AND LIVING HEALTHIER BPT

When you need to fix your car, learn the latest tech or finish a major home improvement, what do you do? You turn to the experts, those with in-depth knowledge on how to accomplish these tasks in the most efficient and effective way. And when you’re looking to improve your overall health by focusing on improving your diet, it’s also time to turn to the experts. Nutritionists and registered dietitians are the thought leaders when it comes to improving your eating habits. So to learn from the professionals, we asked Registered Dietitian and nutritionist Dawn Jackson Blatner to offer her tips on how you can improve your nutrition and start living a healthier life today. She offers this advice: *Get organized. Your environment can work for you or against you. Having an organized refrigerator can be the key to success on the journey to weight loss. Keep produce where it is easily visible and accessible. Storing foods like hard-boiled eggs, chicken breast and roasted vegetables at eye-level can really help to make smarter meal choices. Clear food containers will also help to keep already prepared meals top of mind and lessen food waste, which means saving money in the long run. *Practice superfood swaps. Don’t cut out food cravings — embrace them! Eat the flavors that you crave but swap out overly processed stuff for fresh, wholesome ingredients. Avoid products with chemicals, refined sugars and flours, artificial flavors and preservatives and it will naturally lead to a healthier lifestyle. When you fill the house with healthier foods, you’ll automatically eat smarter when hunger strikes. *Eat your “green base.” It can be difficult to make the right nutrition choices all the time. So when you are eating more decadent food like fried chicken, Chinese or pizza, put it on a base of leafy greens like spinach, spring mix or kale. That way you will get to eat what you want, but you’ll fill up more on your superfood greens and eat less of the highcalorie foods.

omega-3s and more than double the vitamin B12 compared to ordinary eggs, which can be perfect for maintaining heart health. They also contain 25 percent less saturated fat, six times more vitamin D and 10 times the vitamin E of ordinary eggs. Plus, they taste great. Get your day started with this amazing recipe and you’ll be happier and healthier all day long. Spinach, Grape Tomato and Cheddar Frittata Ingredients • 2 tablespoons olive oil • 6 ounces baby spinach • 1 cup grape tomatoes, sliced in half • 8 Eggland's Best eggs (large) • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese • salt & pepper to taste • 1/4 cup milk Directions Preheat oven to 350 F. Whisk eggs and milk together until smooth. Heat cast iron or oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and saute spinach until wilted and then add half of the grape tomatoes. Pour eggs slowly into pan. Sprinkle cheese over eggs and spread remaining grape tomatoes evenly over the egg mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Place skillet to oven and bake for 20-30 minutes or until eggs are cooked through and golden brown. Remove skillet from oven and let rest for a few minutes. Cut into wedges and serve warm.

Getting in shape for summer is more than just feeling good in a swimsuit. It's being healthy so you can participate in all the fun activities that come along with the warmer weather. From hiking to swimming, you don't want to miss out on any of the summer fun. Eating right is a great way to ensure you're healthy and in shape for summer. Use these easy healthy-eating tips to work your way toward healthier living. 1) Eat a high-protein breakfast A Tel Aviv University study found that adding whey protein to your breakfast can help you slim down. What's more, you'll feel satisfied for longer. Record-setting long distance runner Jordan Hasay eats the same wheyprotein-powered breakfast before each of her races. Try out the recipe for yourself: French vanilla BiPro, cinnamon oatmeal, fresh fruit, peanut butter and flax seed. 2) Give your workout routine a jolt A growing body of research shows that having caffeine before exercise can improve athletic performance, whether you're lifting weights or doing an endurance workout. A study in the journal "Nutrients" found that cyclists who consumed caffeine were able to pedal for an average of 23 percent longer than other bikers. Another study, from the "European Journal of Sport Science," indicated that pre-workout caffeine can increase muscular force and power. More research from the "American Journal of Physiology" even shows that consuming caffeine before a workout can help accelerate fat loss!

Why California must defy Trump on immigration Editor's Note: This op-ed first appeared in The San Francisco Chronicle on May 20th, 2017

Kevin de León

Here’s what we learned about Ruben Navarrette Jr. from his May 16 column: He thinks we shouldn’t protect hardworking undocumented residents from President Trump’s mass-deportation machine because it is like kicking “white people in the teeth.” Their fear of losing the “white majority” in coming decades has been heightened by the president’s politically expedient portrayal of immigrants as a lawless community. The fact is, study after study has shown undocumented residents commit fewer crimes and are incarcerated at a much lower rate than those born in the country. Yet, under the Trump administration, arrests of undocumented residents have increased nearly 40 percent from the same time period in 2016, including 10,800 people with no criminal record — a 150 percent increase. Trump wants to commandeer local police to help deport the very people who contribute so much to our culture and economy. When local police enforce immigration laws, they rapidly lose the trust of the undocumented community. Crimes go unreported for fear of arrest and deportation. The perpetrators roam free to strike again. Our communities become less — not more — safe. My legislation, SB54, the California Values Act, will prevent state and local law enforcement agencies from acting as agents of the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Instead, it will keep them focused on what works best — community policing — rather than rounding up folks who in many instances assist police in solving crimes rather than commit them. A newly released report by state Attorney General Javier Becerra that dispels the fallacies spread by the Trump administration about sanctuary policies cites several examples of how the cooperation of undocumented residents led

to arrests and prosecutions. The report also quotes several local law enforcement officials from across the land who stressed the importance of maintaining the trust of communities they serve. Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck put it this way: “When you create a shadow population ... that fears any interaction (with law enforcement), then you create a whole population of victims, because they become prey for human predators who extort them or abuse them because they know they won’t contact the police.” Furthermore, a recent study found that counties that do not cooperate with ICE are safer and enjoy a stronger economy. In California, 1 in 10 workers is undocumented, approximately 3 million in all. They pay an estimated $3 billion in state and local taxes annually. They contribute $180 billion annually to our state’s GDP. To attack them, as the president has, is to attack our economy and prosperity. Undocumented workers’ contributions to Social Security, without the expectation of drawing benefits, has helped keep the program afloat. For instance, in 2010 undocumented workers contributed $13 billion to Social Security while only receiving $1 billion in benefits — a net gain of $12 billion for the program. Californians will not squander their precious public safety dollars to tear apart families, detain Dreamers (undocumented adults brought to the U.S. as children) or deport the people who have helped make California the sixth largest economy in the world. We will not be intimidated by the Trump administration’s gun-to-the-head method to undermine the fundamental values that make our state and nation great. Navarrette and I could agree on this: The immigration crisis is the result of Congress’ failure year after year to fix our dysfunctional immigration system by creating a path to citizenship. State Sen. Kevin de León, D- Los Angeles, is the president pro tempore of the California Senate.

LATINO OUTDOORS: BRIDGING BARRIERS TO THE WILDERNESS THROUGH COMMUNITY OUTREACH Founder of Latino Outdoors Continues to Push for Latino Communities to Go Explore Nature By working with volunteers including families and young professionals he's brought into the fold of hiking and outdoor recreation, Latino Outdoors is building a network which means more opportunity for expansion. “We’ve been building an organization around a community network and movement. That's the whole idea, sometimes we have many families, especially immigrant families, that don’t see themselves going out hiking or doing activities in the same way that might be expected,” says González. José González, founder of Latino Outdoors. Photo Credit: Latino Outdoors

Arturo Hilario El Observador Hiking brings people together, and one man used this idea to plant the roots of environmentalist education and community wellness into one of the least represented groups in outdoor recreation. José González had his introduction to the virtues of outdoor recreation and its uses after he first arrived to this country from Mexico at age 9. While living in California's Central Valley he became enamored with the natural environments around him, starting him on a path towards serving his community through environmental education methods. After spending time as a K-12 public educator, González now serves as Executive Director of Latino Outdoors, an organization he started when it was apparent that Latino communities, like ones here in the Bay Area, were not part of the experience of being outdoors, in state parks and the plentiful open spaces. Latino identity is a big factor for why González began his journey that now has him working on Latino Outdoors. “What does it mean to have a Latino identity? We’re trying to, on one end, dispel the stereotype that Latinos don’t have any relationship or connection to the outdoors but also be the reality that there’s limitations to access.” There is according to González a stereotype which excludes Latinos from activities like hiking, camping etc. He adds, “We used to joke, it’s the ‘carne asada effect’. We’re out there in the parks, but it will be the city parks, municipal parks. Not necessarily with a daypack, going out in a preserve. So our goal is to be able to say, well, what are the barriers that are there for that, and then once we're able to bridge some of that, what does it look like.”

His ultimate goal is to have a sustaining network which helps communities get in touch with their local environment and be able to have these groups know that these parks are part of their communities, and accessible to anyone. Beginnings González can trace the initial idea of Latino Outdoors to his own background and heritage. “That's the whole idea behind Latino Outdoors. It started with me just kind of saying, ‘I like the outdoors’, but I’m also pretty proud to be a Latino in A, B, C ways. I’m an immigrant from Mexico, and I came right before turning 9. First in my family to go to college, oldest of 9. So, in many ways, it’s a familiar Latino story, but at the same time I got hooked into the outdoors and conservation.” González says his approach to the environment, as a traditional conservationist, came from participating in an outdoor conservation program in college aimed at migrant students. “I was going to go into education, I became a teacher, and this was another way that I was going to be of service to the community." What really spurred the activity was his actions in speaking to parents, and finding out if they were aware of the benefits of camping and outdoor recreation for their children, and then for themselves. “I found it to be really rewarding because some kids were not gonna have that experience unless they went to a school that had a sixth grade camp type of experience. They weren’t going out to summer camp or having what they would call enrichment activities,” says González. “This hooked me into it, but also because it allowed be to travel around California and go into natural spaces that I didn’t go to growing up. That was the first time I connected with Yosemite for example, that I found out about all these outdoor schools.” His pursuit of people like him was evident in school as he found in his Latino circles he was 'the outdoor person'. “In college I was in MEChA, and an environmental club. I was

the one talking about the environmental justice stuff and in MEChA I was usually talking about the conservation stuff so my fellow Mechistas gave me a nickname at the end of the year ceremony, ‘the Green Chicano’. It was this idea of it being cultural for me.” Getting People Out There González recalls going to do a presentation in Mountain View a few years ago at the Whisman School District that really pushed the idea of helping not just children to go outdoors, but whole families. “I said, ‘how many of you have seen a redwood? We have them right here right next to us.’ And that’s what brought it home to me, what were some of the ways we could connect families with their nearby parks. So that conservation organizations could see it’s not rocket science, it’s tradition of community organizing and inviting and welcoming. So we started this community of leaders in the Latino Outdoors name and now we’ve been building it.” González says, “the idea is to take families out and have them feel like it’s a welcoming safe space for them, get to learn what this space is, knowing that this preserve is different than the city park. There may not be a grill out here, but here’s what a hiking experience can be like. So that when they see a ranger outside, they know what that means. On one outing I had a dad say, ‘when I see a ranger, I almost feel like they’re gonna come and tell me what I did wrong’.” The first actual outing under the Latino Outdoors name happened in February of 2014. González says that this initial outing provided the model for the organizations methods. “That was actually in Point Reyes. I had an environmental group basically email me, and they came across my name. They typed in ‘Latino outdoors’ and I’m the first thing that popped up.” This group wanted to work with a Latino organization to organize a trip to Point Reyes under a grant they had. “So we did it, worked together, three Latino serving orgs, one in Marine, and we took a group out there,” says González. “If we can be of service to Latino service organizations we don’t have to do all the organizing, we can assist. Later on that summer we got grants to do more outings in that summer and we did those in the Central Valley to see the sequoias.” The initial response from that first group was according to González supportive but surprising to the attendees as well. “They didn’t know that this was so close. Half an hour, 45 minute drive. It was a mix as well, we had a group of Latino boy scouts that

came out. We also had some elder couples, and they’re like, ‘we’ve never been out here’, this was like the first time they had been out there.” “Our Park” González makes sure to add a powerful story from one of the group leaders of a Central Valley outing. “One of the leaders, she shared this profound quote. She said after the outing one of the participants came up and said, ‘thank you for bringing us to your park.’ Our leader said, ‘no, this is a public place. It means this is your park too. This is our park.’ That shift, shifting from feeling like we’re visitors in somebody else’s space to that sense of, ‘wait a minute, these our public lands and documentation doesn’t matter here’, because as a resident you’re probably already paying taxes somewhere. Plus, you’re a community member. That’s one of the biggest things that’s come out a lot.” Barriers González says that barriers have existed, and will continue to do so. The biggest one is transportation. “We do have cases where some families have difficulties accessing the place because either they might have one car in the family and a family member needs to use it for the weekend and others don’t know how to get to somewhere. Or public transportation is not available somewhere. Or they have to be strategic in how they’re spending their money.” González adds that the transportation barrier has been addressed in some ways with grants for transportation which are sometimes available and helps participants join in Latino Outdoors activities. Expanding the Narrative Last year the National Park Service celebrated it’s centennial. Part of that was really focusing in on how the next hundred years would bring in a more diverse population of the American People to national Parks. González says that working with them, being one of the few organizations that focuses on Latinos in the outdoors also helped boost their profile, but also showed there still is progress to be made, as much as the NPS attempted to bring in Latinos. “Especially last year with the centennial it was a lot of telling people (in the Park Service) that it’s doable, but you need to invest in resources to make it happen, otherwise it doesn't move, you keep talking about the barriers instead of saying this is how we’re working with the solutions.” Our program in the Pacific Northwest has worked with the Parks’ Service there. Here in the North Bay because we have


MAY 26 - JUNE 1, 2017 Golden Gate, Muir Woods, Point Reyes we have done outings with them. I’ve sat in at different roundtables in DC with them, the Department of the Interior do that. And we’ve also started a bit of work with the National Park Foundation, helped them expand that out. Especially when they were trying to do “Encuentra tu parque”. González wants to continue to work with the NPS and the organizations like his to work on expanding this narrative of Latinos being tied to the outdoors, that it possible and with networks he's created since Latino Outdoor's inception it should be possible to change the way Latinos see the environment and its uses. Networking with similar organizations was a challenge at first, according to González. “When I started, I literally was knocking on doors to see who else was doing it. What I wanted to do was work with or for other organizations doing it, and that wasn’t happening, so I just started my own thing. Since then, there’s 4 other orgs that we partnered with a year and a half ago and we created something called the Latino Conservation Alliance, because we were either small start-up orgs or we were organizations that were just starting to do environmental conservation.” These organizations reside mainly on the East Coast but some do have national presence. They include: Green Latinos, Hispanic Access Foundation, Hispanic Federation, and HECHO, which is an acronym for Hispanics Enjoying Camping, Hunting, and the Outdoors. “They’re not necessarily there to do national level work. They’re really rooted in community. For me it’s been exciting to kind of see how they can all be connected as a part of a movement.”

EL OBSERVADOR | www.el-observador.com The Future of Latino Outdoors Last year a short film that Latino Outdoors co created with Nature Kids Institute called “Estamos Aqui” (“We are here!”) was screened at the White House, and González felt a unique sense of pride at his accomplishment that began with an inquiry 3 years ago. “It was this beautiful culminating thing from not existing, to having a domain name, to now having this visibility, and for us the national administration is different now and has changed, but that brings it’s own challenges and opportunities.” The future of the organization lies in organizational development according to González. “Now we have a community to support, a team of volunteers that’s helping us make the work happen, so our shift is in investing in them so that in 5 to 10 years Latino Outdoors will be one of the goto, or the go-to organization when people think about, ‘how do we engage the Latino leadership in nature and conservation?’ We’re there.” A Latino Timeline of Conservation González recalls that the history of Latino groups of this nature were mostly erased from history. In the 60’s, 70's and 80's Latino based environmental groups in the Southwestern United States came and went. He sought to start something up again which would reclaim that forgotten history of Latinos in the outdoors. He adds that looking into the past helps him decide how to move forward with Latino Outdoors. “For me, the sustainability and longevity is important otherwise we disappear and we kind of become another one of the organizations that didn’t make it. To me

that’s important because when I look back at the history of Latino heritage in the American conservation and environmental movement, most of the time we’re written out, or we’re not recognized for the contributions we’ve made along the way.” This timeline of Latino environment movements is partially responsible for González's push to reclaim the history and representation of Latinos in the outdoor movements. “It’s kind of this lost lineage, and for me, I don’t want that to happen because we have a really strong community, so for me it’s like a lot of our big names in conservation like the Sierra Club, the Nature Conservancy they’ve received the support to exist. Our big push now is to say, ‘we need to be part of that infrastructure, and they took time.’ So for us to exist in that capacity, it’s important that we create an organization that sustains a community, a network and a movement. That’s my big plan,” says González. At the end of the day González wants for families and individuals to take a chance and get out with either one of the Latino Outdoors group outings or on their own to experience the open spaces here locally, statewide, and beyond. “For someone who has little to no connection [to the outdoors] we usually say if in doubt, reach out to us and see if there’s an outing nearby. Sometimes the barrier might be that you just don’t know if you want to go out there on your own, or what to do, what to wear, what to bring, how to plan for it.” González notes how much nature we are surrounded with in the immediate Bay Area, and how he explains to families the wellness aspect of being out in the fresh air, away from the urban for a few hours at a

11

time is a rewarding experience, both for the mind and for the family health as a whole. “Especially for families that have been working hard all week, ‘why would I want to go spend two hours walking?’ Think of it this way, you have been working hard all week and what you need is some restoration, some health, some wellness. You need some time with your family. That’s why a lot of the stuff that we do has that connection to wellness.” One story that best highlights this aspect for González involves some families that went on a group campout through Latino Outdoors. The adults and children were separated for their respective activities, children would run around in addition to their activity, and the adults had a mindful practice meditation session. “It was a mindful practice in the redwoods, such that so many just fell asleep, they were all in focus, and relaxed. That’s what nature can provide you so when you go out there think about it that way.” As González pursues more ways of tapping into the Latino community, as well as those that have not participated in visiting natural spaces, he values the importance of being seen, being heard, and being represented in environmental education and history. “For me the most important thing is that Latino’s of any background, immigrant [families], or whether you've been here five generations, I feel like it’s important that we see ourselves reflected, not just physically in the outdoors, but in the history of the outdoors, and in the leadership.” For more information on upcoming events through Latino Outdoors, please visit https://www.facebook.com/ LatinoOutdoors/.

It’s no surprise that the Trump administration is looking to change course when it comes to federal action to mitigate climate change, but analysts have been surprised how quickly and drastically the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has “updated” its website to reflect the outlook of its new leader. The information purge began within just two weeks of Donald Trump taking office. Researchers from the Environmental Data and Governance Initiative (EDGI), a group of scientists tracking federal environmental and energy websites and data, first noticed changes on January 22 when a page formerly called “Federal Partner Collaboration” was updated with new content and renamed “EPA Adaptation Collaboration.” A few days later, the EPA changed the content of both its “climate and water” page to reflect the new administration’s interest in freeing up real estate developers from onerous restrictions, and its “international cooperation” page pledging to stand with other countries’ in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Interestingly, these early changes were made three weeks prior to the confirmation of notorious climate change denier Scott Pruitt as EPA Administrator. The next big round of changes came almost two months later on the eve of the People’s Climate March in Washington DC when the EPA removed several sub-pages under its climate section containing detailed climate data. This had originally been published during Obama’s tenure to help the public understand the magnitude of the global warming threat and to provide researchers

with information to put into their models to predict how climate change will affect the environment and human health. According to The Washington Post, one of the recently removed sections challenged statements made by Scott Pruitt, while another provided detailed information on the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan (a new rule which the Trump administration is working to “undo”). Another removed section, “A Student’s Guide to Global Climate Change,” featured some 50 pages of content tailored to students studying environment and climate, leaving thousands of teachers who had incorporated the data into curricula high and dry for the rest of the school year. (Luckily for teachers, the city of Chicago has republished an archived version of this section on its own website.)

“At a time when Americans are increasingly experiencing climate impacts in their daily lives, the administration has seemingly buried its head in the sand,” says Astrid Caldas, climate scientist at the non-profit Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS). “The facts about climate change have not changed, however, and politics are not a valid reason to archive basic explanations of science.” For its part, the EPA dismisses the critique as partisan quibbling. “As EPA renews its commitment to human health and clean air, land, and water, our website needs to reflect the views of the leadership of the agency,” says agency spokesman J.P. Freire. “We want to eliminate confusion by removing outdated language first and making room to discuss how we’re protecting the environment and human health by partnering with states and working within the law.”

Uso espiritual de los cristales Mario Jiménez Castillo El Observador Los cristales conforman la más hermosa y simétrica representación del mundo mineral. Se han formado a través de miles de años y de cambios geológicos en cuevas y en el subsuelo terrestre. Los cristales poseen una infinidad de aplicaciones para la existencia mística y espiritual del ser humano, por lo que se recomienda al menos tener uno. Según algunos historiadores la base fundamental de la antigua civilización de la Atlántida fueron los cristales. Lastimosamente en aquel entonces se utilizaron con propósitos degenerativos y destructivos, lo que causó que todo un continente colapsara. Los cristales son transmisores y receptores de energía. Utilizándolos correctamente podemos convertirlos en nuestra fuente de energía pura. Los cristales son usados en la fabricación de instrumentos tecnológicos, radios, computadoras, telescopios, etc. En el mundo místico espiritual tienen un valor incalculable porque se pueden transformar en una especie de computadora privada, pues podemos dirigirnos a ellos enfocando nuestras ideas, memorias y conceptos en los destellos luminosos de luz y energía que ellos emanan. A través de esa luz, nuestra energía puede ser recargada o almacenada por medio de la comunicación telepática entre un cristal y la mente humana. Los cristales son minerales que tienen la potestad de comunicarse. Observémoslos, están llenos de vida por ello mantienen esa firmeza estructural y ese brillo inimitable. Cuando decida obtener un cristal, vaya a la tienda, obsérvelo, tóquelo, sienta su energía y será el cristal que le corresponda en este plano de vida quien le atraerá como a un imán. En recientes estudios científicos, se ha comprobado que la energía rutilante de un cristal es capaz de prevenir, aliviar y hasta curar padecimientos físicos, mentales,

emocionales y espirituales. Si siente un dolor, una pena o un sentimiento que le perturbe, tome un cristal fuertemente con las dos manos y expóngalo a la luz solar o a la luz de la luna llena, y permita que su energía penetre todo su ser. Cómo limpiar un Cristal Si observa que un cristal se muestra sucio, opaco o con falta de destello, debe limpiarlo inmediatamente. Existen varias alternativas para hacerlo: con agua de mar, con agua de río, con agua de lago o haciendo una preparación casera.

Compra un producto y llevate el otro GRATIS en la linea Mirada Provence! La linea Mirada Provence es hecha en Francia y es de la mejor calidad!

Se necesita: agua mineral, agua de coco, una cantidad mínima de sal y una pizca de bicarbonato de sodio. Se mezclan los ingredientes en un recipiente metálico, se voltea el cristal y se deja reposando en la mezcla durante una noche de luna llena. Al día siguiente se expone a los rayos del sol durante tres horas diurnas. . Las mejores fechas para limpiar un cristal son durante los solsticios y equinoccios, 21 de marzo, 22 de junio, 22 de septiembre y 21 de diciembre. Cómo se carga de energía un Cristal El primer paso es la limpieza, posteriormente la exposición a la luz del sol y a la luz de la luna llena, también puede cargarse junto a otros cristales. El tamaño del cristal no es importante, lo sustancial es el efecto benéfico que provoque. Para eliminar las malas energías depositadas en un cristal, primero debe limpiarse con agua mineral, posteriormente mantenerlo en el congelador durante 24 horas y finalmente se expone a la luz del sol durante dos o tres horas. Para eliminar sentimientos adversos debe enfocarse en un cristal de cuarzo rutilado, tómelo fuertemente con ambas manos y visualice la parte interna del cristal. Al llegar a ese punto, envíe por medio de mensajes telepáticos, todos los sentimientos, emociones y pensamientos que le perturben y mediante una visualización creativa, deposítelos en el interior del cristal como si se tratase de una caja fuerte.

JUSTICE DEPARTMENT SETTLES U.S. WORKER EL DEPARTAMENTO DE JUSTICIA RESUELVE UNA DENUNCIA DE DISCRIMINACIÓN CONTRA UNA DISCRIMINATION CLAIMS AGAINST NEW MEXICO FARM GRANJA EN NUEVO MÉXICO WASHINGTON – The Justice Department preferences that disfavor U.S. workers.  We announced on Tuesday May 23rd that it has reached a settlement agreement with Carrillo Farm Labor, LLC (Carrillo Farm), an onion farm in Deming, New Mexico.  The settlement resolves the department’s investigation of complaints that Carrillo Farm discriminated against U.S. citizens due to a hiring preference for foreign visa workers.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – El Departamento de Justicia anunció el 23 de mayo que ha llegado a un acuerdo con Carrillo Farm Labor, LLC («Carrillo Farm»), una granja que cultiva cebollas en Deming, Nuevo México. El acuerdo resuelve la investigación por parte del Departamento de quejas de que Carrillo Farm discriminó a ciudadanos estadounidenses al dar preferencia durante el proceso de contratación a trabajadores extranjeros con visa. Tras investigar las denuncias presentadas en nombre de dos ciudadanos estadounidenses, el Departamento de Justicia determinó que Carrillo Farm se negó a contratar a ciudadanos estadounidenses en el 2016 porque quería contratar a trabajdores extranjeros temporales conforme al programa de visas H-2A. Según la disposición antidiscriminatoria de la ley de Inmigración y Nacionalidad (INA, por sus siglas en inglés), es ilegal que un empleador discrimine de forma intencionada a ciudadanos de los EE. UU. por motivos de su estatus de ciudadanía. El acuerdo requiere que Carrillo Farm pague una sanción civil a los Estados Unidos, que participe en una capacitación liderada por el Departamento acerca de la disposición antidiscriminatoria de la INA y que cumpla con los requisitos de declaración y supervisión del Departamento. En otro acuerdo que se alcanzó por aparte con un grupo de trabajadores representado por Texas RioGrande Legal Aid, Carrillo Farm accedió a pagar un total de $44.000 por concepto de salario perdido a los trabajadores en este país quienes fueron victimas de la discriminación.   Los trabajadores en este país representan el pilar de nuestra economía, y el Departamento de Justicia no tolerará a empleadores que los discriminen por motivos de su estatus de ciudadanía», afirmó el Fiscal General Auxiliar en funciones Tom Wheeler, de la División de Derechos Civiles. «El Departamento se ha comprometido a luchar contra aquellas preferencias discriminatorias en la contratación que desfavorecen a los trabajadores en este país Felicitamos a Texas RioGrande por llamarnos la atención en

cuanto a este asunto y a Carrillo Farm por su cooperación con el Departamento a la hora de implementar las medidas correctivas necesarias para la resolución del asunto. Este acuerdo forma parte de la iniciativa de ejecución del Departamento de Justicia que se dedica a combatir la discriminación contra los trabajadores en este país. La Sección de Derechos de Inmigrantes y Empleados (IER, por sus siglas en inglés), que anteriormente se conocía como la Oficina del Consejero Especial para Prácticas Injustas en el Empleo Relacionadas con la Inmigración, que pertenece a la División, es responsable de aplicar la disposición antidiscriminatoria de la INA. Entre otras cosas, esta ley prohíbe la discriminación por motivos de estatus migratorio, ciudadanía o nacionalidad de origen en los procesos de contratación, despido o reclutamiento o recomendación por comisión; la discriminación en el proceso de verificación de la elegibilidad para trabajar; las represalias y la intimidación. Para más información sobre protecciones contra la discriminación en el empleo en virtud de las leyes migratorias, llame a la línea directa de la IER para trabajadores al 1800255-7688 (1800-237-2515, TTY para personas con discapacidades auditivas); llame a la línea directa de la IER para empleadores al 1-800-255-8155 (1-800-2372515, TTY para personas con discapacidades auditivas); matricúlese para un seminario en línea gratuito; mande un correo electrónico a IER@usdoj.gov o visite la página web de la IER en inglés (https://www.justice.gov/ ier) o español (https://www.justice.gov/crtespanol/ier).   Aquellos postulantes o empleados que creen haber sido sometidos a otros requisitos documentales por motivos de su estatus migratorio, ciudadanía o nacionalidad de origen, o a la discriminación por motivos de su estatus migratorio, ciudadanía o nacionalidad de origen en los procesos de contratación, despido o reclutamiento o recomendación por comisión deben llamar a la línea directa de la IER para trabajadores para pedir ayuda.

After investigating complaints filed on behalf of two U.S. citizens, the Justice Department determined that Carrillo Farm denied U.S. citizens employment in 2016 because it wanted to hire temporary foreign workers under the H-2A visa program. Under the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), it is unlawful for employers to intentionally discriminate against U.S. citizens because of their citizenship status.   The settlement agreement requires Carrillo Farm to pay civil penalties to the United States, undergo department-provided training on the anti-discrimination provision of the INA, and comply with departmental monitoring and reporting requirements.  In a separate agreement with workers represented by Texas RioGrande Legal Aid, Carrillo Farm agreed to pay a total of $44,000 in lost wages to affected U.S. workers. “U.S. workers are the backbone of our economy, and the Justice Department will not tolerate employers discriminating against them because of their citizenship status,” said Acting Assistant Attorney General Tom Wheeler of the Civil Rights Division.  “The department is wholeheartedly committed to challenging discriminatory hiring

commend Texas RioGrande for bringing the matter to our attention and applaud Carrillo Farm for cooperating with the department to implement the corrective actions necessary to resolve this matter.” This settlement is part of a Justice Department enforcement initiative dedicated to combatting employment discrimination against U.S. workers. The Division’s Immigration and Employee Rights Section (IER), formerly known as the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices, is responsible for enforcing the anti-discrimination provision of the INA.  The statute prohibits, among other things, citizenship status and national origin discrimination in hiring, firing, or recruitment or referral for a fee; unfair documentary practices; retaliation; and intimidation.    For more information about protections against employment discrimination under immigration laws, call IER’s worker hotline at 1-800-255-7688 (1-800-237-2515, TTY for hearing impaired); call IER’s employer hotline at 1-800-255-8155 (1-800-2372515, TTY for hearing impaired); sign up for a free webinar; email IER@usdoj.gov; or visit IER’s English and Spanish websites. Applicants or employees who believe they were subjected to: different documentary requirements based on their citizenship, immigration status, or national origin; or discrimination based on their citizenship, immigration status or national origin in hiring, firing, or recruitment or referral, should contact IER’s worker hotline for assistance.

In addition, a greater proportion of Hispanics are in the family-building stage of life-in their childbearing years (ages 15 to 44)-than are their non-Hispanic counterparts. In 2014, over one fifth (23 percent) of all U.S. births occurred to Hispanic women. Notably, fertility now contributes more than immigration does to the growth of the Hispanic population. This means an increasing proportion of Hispanic children are U.S.-born; in fact, over 90 percent of Hispanic children under age 18 were born in the United States. The launch will be the first multi-cultural animation project that will air in Spanish and in English for years to come and which will utilize characters as spokespersons to reach three generations; grandparents, parents and kids for family messaging while

delivering an "evergreen" product that adapts to changing cultural norms and demands of the Hispanic community. The specials are  based on the characters created by Martha Montoya. Los Toons roots in Hispanic culture giving a unique perspective in building colorful and traditional stories, which are told by the creative characters born from her Colombian heritage, traditions and locations. We'll follow the adventures of Martha, Beto and Paolo as they learn how to balance their parent's rich traditions with the sometimes, confusing melting pot that surrounds them. In doing so, Los Toons, their alter egos, Pikito, Mima, and Picarito help us explore the wide range of questions faced by all families as they merge their old traditions with a new way of life. The three specials: "Aventuras de Regreso a Clase" "El Día de Acción de Gracias" "La Navidad" Los Toons will feature music and animation that resonates with all ages, are targeted to and bridge the gap between newly arriving immigrants and their quickly acculturated children, as well as multi-generational families who value their culture and heritage.

Oakland, CA — Visit Oakland, the city’s official destination marketing organization, is proud to announce the creation of the Visit OaklandPublic Mural Grant Program(PMGP) that will offer anywhere between $500 to $5K per project. Visit Oakland has allocated a total of $25K in the first year of PMGP.    The creation of the grant program recognizes the importance of the arts community within Oakland to visitor interest and establishes a strong sense of place for residents. In launching this program, Visit Oakland hopes to increase the number of public murals for display in the city while supporting the talented artist community within Oakland. Visit Oakland will identify and fund the projects that highlight positive images of Oakland’s history and culture.  Eligible participants include: 1. Artists and private business owners who submit a joint application. 2. 501(c)(3) arts organizations with an annual operating income of $300 or under 3. Art programs of 510(c)(3) non-arts programs Other requirements include submitting a grant request between $500 to $5K with a guaranteed 25% match from the grantee. Applicants residing in Oakland or a history of supporting the Oakland arts community will be given priority. The entire PMCP guidelines can be viewed on the online.  Last year, Visit Oakland debuted the official visitor “selfie wall” for tourists and proud Oakland natives on the front of the Oakland Marriott City Center. Since then, Visit Oakland has encouraged other mural projects in the city, including

“Murals add f lavor to the city,” says Steve Ha, artist with muralists the Illuminaries, who created the murals for Visit Oakland and the Oakland Athletics. “Sometimes building owners don't have the funds, but their wall needs some love. Artists need money for materials and time. A grant program will be able to solve all these problems and help street art continue to f lourish heavily. It's all about beautifying the streets and a grant program is a good start for that.” Local businesses see the benefits of public murals as a visitor attraction to bring attention and foot traffic to otherwise overlooked areas. “I could not be happier about the mural created by the Illuminaries, located prominently in front of the Oakland Marriott on the corner of Broadway and 10th,” says Lisa Kershner, GM of the Oakland Marriott City Center. “It has brought the neighborhood together to celebrate the vibrant art of local Oakland artists. It continues to be a sought after ‘selfie’ site and continues to be Facebook and Instagram worthy to all visiting downtown Oakland.” "Independent Brewing Company was proud to allow Tourism Cares to paint a mural at the brewery as a neighborhood beautification effort and to attract more people to discover a previously unvisited area of the Jack London Warehouse district,” says Steve McDaniel, Brewer and Owner of the Oakland brewery. Public arts and art installations at previously vacant locations add a sense of wonder and connection to areas previously cut-off from the f low of citizen involvement and attract new people to neighborhoods and business districts.” The Visit Oakland Public Mural Grant Program officially begins accepting applications this month.
