April 6th: Steve Early, author of Refinery Town

In Refinery Town, Steve Early chronicles the fifteen years of successful community organizing that raised the local minimum wage, defeated a casino development project, challenged home foreclosures and evictions, and sought fair taxation of Big Oil in Richmond, Calif. Part urban history, part call to action, Refinery Town shows how concerned citizens can harness the power of local politics to reclaim their community and make municipal government a source of much-needed policy innovation.

April 18th: Bus service on the Coastside, a discussion with SamTrans

Join SamTrans Chief Communications Officer Seamus Murphy and Director of Planning Douglas Kim in a conversation about the current and future state of bus service on the Coastside and in Half Moon Bay. They will provide an update on the latest SamTrans studies and planning efforts and will invite attendees to share their vision for local SamTrans service.

May 4th: An evening fundraiser with Marc Smolowitz, Director-Producer of the documentary in production: THE G WORD, the first feature length theatrical documentary to fully examine what it means to be gifted. Marc will pre-screen clips from the film, discuss the process involved in making a feature documentary, and participate in a panel discussion on gifted education with other local Bay Area education leaders.

About THE G WORD: Gifted kids are a minority population. Misunderstood. Frequently mocked and bullied by students and teachers. At risk for misdiagnosis and isolation. Present in all races, ethnicities, socioeconomic classes, and genders. THE G WORD will cinematically explore the misunderstood experience of the gifted at every stage of life. Through personal interviews with children, adults and elders, poetic imagery and animation integrated with live action the viewer is exposed to a rare look at what goes on inside the gifted brain. Interwoven with elements of historical context, media portrayal, insights from renowned experts, authors, and policymakers, the film sheds light on the vast array of social-emotional challenges related to high intelligence for both children and their parents. Admission, appetizers, beer and wine are complimentary
