Through their Urban Campesinx* program at the Excelsior District Hummingbird Farm, PODER (People Organizing to Demand Environmental and Economic Rights) organizes with immigrant and working class communities of color  to create community led and environmentally just solutions for community needs.

In this family friendly program, Professor of Sustainability and Environmental Justice Antonio Roman-Alcalá will host a dialogue with PODER activists across generations. A craft to create a "seed-love" will follow the discussion.

This program will be in Spanish and English and there will be interpretation provided.

This program is brought to you by SFPL's Environmental Center.

*Urban Campesinx, the food justice and young adult leadership program of PODER SF, stewards Hummingbird Farm. Hummingbird Farm foregrounds ancestral wisdom in food production, regenerative living, plant medicine, queer ecology, community and climate resilience. As they note, “We are undoing the disconnection between each other, between people and the land, between workers and their labor, between communities and their ancestral wisdom.” Reflecting the lessons of Mother Earth, we work better together to organize for collective power, solidarity and holistic well being. 

Find out how to adopt a greener lifestyle and discover the outdoors with SFPL and its partners.

Connect to engaging discussions and performances related to the Latinx community.

¡VIVA! at the Library is a celebration of Latinx heritage, cultures and traditions. San Francisco has a rich Latinx heritage that is highlighted in a diverse array of exciting programs for all ages, from Spanish/bilingual storytimes to cooking classes, author talks to art and cultural presentations.

Get informed about local and national civic issues.

This program is sponsored by Friends of the San Francisco Public Library.
