APRIL 1, 2021
San Leandro City Council, Residents, and City Employees

Greetings on April Fool's Day! I have re-started my newsletter, which will come to you at the beginning of each month.

I'm encouraged to see progress in our fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Locally, our County transitioned to the Orange Tier on March 31st, and the State expanded vaccine eligibility. You can read further details on the progress in San Leandro Next's blog post. Together, we can beat this virus by washing our hands, maintaining social distancing, and wearing face-coverings while in public.

Last week, Mayor Pauline Russo Cutter issued a statement on the rise of anti-Asian attacks. You can read her statement on the City website. It was also published in the San Leandro Times (April 1st edition). Mayor Cutter mentioned in her statement, "As a city of kindness, we will never waver in the face of hateful acts. I encourage the San Leandro community to come together during this difficult time to acknowledge the Asian American experience and their positive contributions to San Leandro." The City is making progress in the City Council's desire to establish the community-led Race and Equity Taskforce. Treating all people with dignity and respect is the genesis of the task force's purpose.

The Recreation and Human Services Department will operate two summer camps for our youth. Registration is limited, so please sign up now on their website. Additionally, the City is offering youth mini-grants to organizations that serve youth in San Leandro. Please visit the official application page for more information.
Sincerely,
