Learn about the new statewide renter protection law on Sunday, 10/27/19

Sunday, October 27, One San Mateo will host a special renter meet-up to be held at the Congregational Church of San Mateo from 4 to 6 pm.  A primary purpose of the meet-up will be to inform renters about AB 1482, the new statewide renter protection law that was just signed into law by Governor Newsom on October 8.

Over the past few weeks, One San Mateo has been knocking on the doors of renters to ask them about their top concerns and to urge them to come to the renter meet-up.  Though our knocking has been focused on the North Central neighborhood, all San Mateo renters are invited to attend.

WHAT:            Special meet-up for San Mateo renters
WHEN:            Sunday, October 27 from 4 to 6 pm
WHERE:          Congregational Church of San Mateo, 225 Tilton Avenue

Attached is the invitation we have been leaving at renters’ doors.  As you will see, one side is in English and the other in Spanish.  Please spread the word about this event.  Translation will be provided, and food will be served.

Join me (Esme Cabrera) on an urban tree walk through the most diverse (human and natural) and historic area of San Mateo. Our walk will follow the surrounding areas of the year-long freshwater San Mateo Creek, ancestral homelands of the Salson Ohlone and fateful meeting place between indigenous people, the Spanish and then Europeans. We will identify native, historic trees of about 4 blocks as well as talk about the most ethnically diverse area (historic redlining) of San Mateo and its role in shaping local cultural diversity and activism. We may be joined by multiple neighborhood residents and/or ecological experts who also have a wealth of knowledge of POC history or natural features of the area.

We will be walking a total of about 6-8 blocks, no inclines. Wear hats/sunscreen, bring water and comfy shoes (or chanclas, you do you boo.)

Afterward, whoever wants to can lunch at any of the local mom and pop pupuserias, cevicherias, or taquerias in the neighboring Latino business district of nearby B st (also a place with a long history of businesses run by POC).

Vengan a descubrir y disfrutar de una caminata por las vecindades de North Central San Mateo. Nuestra caminata se enfocara alrededor del Arroyo de San Mateo, tierras ancestrales de los Salson Ohlone y lugar de encuentro entre este pueblo, los españoles/mexicanos y despues los europeos. Identificaremos arboles historicos y nativos de California al igual que hablar sobre la historia etnica y cultural de este local importante. Varias personas estaran disponibles para hablar sobre la vecindad y sus facetas naturales relucientes.

Caminaremos un total de 6-8 cuadras sin inclinaciones. Traiga gorra, bloqueador de sol, agua y zapatos confortables (chanclas, huaraches, ok 🙂

Depues, el que quiera puede organizarse para ir a comer a cualquier de los establecimientos locales, hay varios en la calle B st.
