788 Santa Clara Ave., Alameda, CA 94501, California, 94501

On Tuesday, April 5, 2016, the West End Library, 788 Santa Clara Ave., will host a climate change workshop facilitated by the Sunflower Alliance Education Committee. The program will begin at 7:00 p.m.

Educators from the Sunflower Alliance will lead an interactive workshop to promote the understanding of basic climate issues. Using large visual aids, developed in conjunction with climate scientists, and small group discussions, facilitators will help participants to understand essential concepts. Some topics covered include, why two degrees is such a big deal; what is meant by unconventional extraction; why extreme cold is occurring as the climate warms; what are tar sands; and what sustainable solutions exist to remedy the climate crisis.

The Sunflower Alliance Education Committee is a group of people who want to bring climate education to the general public. It includes teachers, writers, retirees, climate activists, and citizens concerned about the future and who believe that global warming is the most important and urgent issue facing the whole of humanity and all life forms that exist today.

For more information, please contact the West End Library at 510-747-7767.

2nd Annual Veterans Job & Resource Fair
In honor of Veterans Day 2017, the USS Hornet Museum is hosting a 2nd Annual Job & Resource Fair for veterans, military families and active military soon to be transitioning to civilian jobs. This event is an opportunity to meet face-to-face with top Bay Area companies from a cross-section of industries ready to hire. Even if you are not familiar with a company or hiring agency, still visit their booth as they may have the right job waiting for you at their corporate office despite being, for example, a retail company. Visit our website before the big day to see which employers are participating. Bring copies of your resume, pens and confirmation of your registration. Come ready to be interviewed. Registering is important for faster on-boarding and to give us an accurate head count for refreshments and supplies. Your registration provides an opportunity to tour the ship in between seeing recruiters, as well as admission on Saturday, November 11th for Veterans Day. Due to security reasons, please do not bring large bags or backpacks if at all possible with you. Please share this opportunity with other veterans and military spouses you know looking for work. Thank you. FAQs Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event? I.D. required to match name on registration. Bring your military card or form DD214 (if you still have it), just in case an employer or service provider asks. You may register at the door but we strongly encourage advance registration so we know you are attending. What are my transport/parking options getting to the event? Free parking lot in front of the ship, including many handicap stalls. There will be a free shuttle from the College of Alameda to the ship. How can I contact the organizer with any questions? Outreach@uss-hornet.org. For more information about the museum, visit www.uss-hornet.org. Dress code? If at all possible, dress professionally as if going on an interview. If planning to explore other parts of the ship beyond the Hangar Deck, we discourage wearing open toe shoes for your safety as reaching those decks or levels will require using a ladder. Is there a free shuttle? Yes! Michael's Transportation (one of the employers participating) will run a free shuttle on a continuous loop between the Admin Building of the College of Alameda to the Hornet and back again. This location is near the corner of Webster Street and Atlantic Avenue, a major stop for buses in Alameda.
