San Geronimo Valley Community Center – September, 2022
From the streets of Oakland and San Francisco, to the Guapinol community in Honduras, the Anishinaabe in Minnesota, and the fenceline communities of the Bay Area refinery corridor… unique and yet intertwined stories of communities protecting what they need to survive and creatively building towards a world where they can thrive.
This exhibit was tied in with a month of activities at the San Geronimo Valley Community Center related to the UN International Day of Peace on September 24th. On the 23rd, I had the very great pleasure of sharing my exhibit with the middle schoolers at Lagunitas Middle School… about 75 6th, 7th and 8th graders. I was able to share with them a wide range of social justice stories and some really creative/beautiful actions happening around the Bay Area that involve many different communities fighting for change. Their very thoughtful questions and observations seemed to reflect sparks of genuine interest and curiosity.
Thanks so much to Cory VanGelder and Greenstitch Climate Action for making this happen!
