Welcome to the new subscribers! This newsletter serves to connect neighbors of the Bernal Cut on both the Bernal and Glen Park sides of San Jose Ave. Coming together to improve the conditions around our homes, streets and open spaces.
Great news! We have been awarded seed funds to start RESILIENT BERNAL CUT.
The Resilience Movement connects neighbors, reinforces social networks and bolsters resources so that neighborhoods like ours can be ready for the next emergency. Let’s get prepared!
Erika Ehmsen (a NERT trained neighbor) and I have continued our conversations with Daniel Homsey from the Neighborhood Empowerment Network. He recommended our group to Resilient Noe Valley, which voted to share some funding from Supervisor Mandelman’s office with us and is going to guide us through the steps toward investing in our future. Big thanks!
Join us this Tuesday, September 1st at 7pm to learn how to get involved.
“The good neighbor looks beyond the external accidents and discerns those inner qualities that make all men human and, therefore, brothers.” — Martin Luther King Jr.
Building an emergency strategy for your neighborhood: The Neighborhood Empowerment Network’s Block Champion Program provides residents with the capacity and the resources to organize a team of neighbors who can activate and work quickly in an organized manner to provide their vulnerable peers with a “service bridge” that will protect their health and well-being until normal government service levels are restored.
And the gates under the west end of the Richland Bridge have been installed!
Big Thanks DPW!
