Station SL Happenings

The Green New Deal

Town Halls for a Green New Deal came to Station SL on Earth Day, April 22nd, to introduce and educate our community about the Green New Deal.

The event, hosted by Patty and Emily Breslin, was to discuss the pathway to make the Green New Deal become a reality. As part of a grassroots movement, they brought stories of people who stand to benefit from the Green New Deal and help everyone understand that the GND isn't about taking away cows or cars, but about building things up and investing in the American people.

According to Ms. Breslin,

"The Green New Deal, if properly implemented in San Leandro, would help our city become more equitable, inclusive and climate-smart oriented to transition into a green economy. Decades of restructuring of our social and infrastructural foundation would be required to effectively move forward on making our city be a truly green city. Though it may take time, actions and movements are already in place. Citizens from all across the Bay Area came out to be a part of the movement, to not only hear about the future but to take action in shaping it."

Station SL was transformed into an arts center displaying artwork created by Andrea and the public.  The evening also featured live music from locally acclaimed musicians.

The interactive art created by participants focused on how their families journeyed from their homelands to San Leandro throughout the generations.  Andrea's goal is to bring people together through art and to explore how sharing our personal journeys allows us to see what we have in common.

Andrea’s project will incorporate pieces from this first event with two more events running through summer.  The project is funded by a City of San Leandro grant to create community-focused art events. Keep an ear out for Andrea's next art exhibition here in San Leandro.

From Where to Here a San Leandro Art Exhibition

Local artist, Andrea Guskin, has won a grant from the City of San Leandro to create community-focused art events in a project called, From Where to Here. This series of events will run from spring through summer in a variety of San Leandro locations.  Her goal is to bring together different types of arts, cultures, and communities. Andrea's vision is to have these art events become regular monthly gatherings to bring people together in San Leandro.  The project will include a new interactive piece that will be created in part by people attending the progressive events, and displayed at the culminating community celebration. 

The opening event will be held at our very own Station SL on April 6th from 6pm-8pm, where there will be food, art, and live music featuring a flamenco guitarist and conga player!

In the spirit of Election season, Station SL’s phone booths were transformed into fantastic faux voting booths to encourage the kids to learn about their civic duty and remind the grown ups to get to the polls on the 6th.
