San Mateo County is currently experiencing and will continue to experience drift smoke from the fires from our north. Changes in wind and stability of the atmosphere will vary the amounts of smoke as they change. The Bay Area Air Quality Management District has issued smoke and health advisories for the region. Please visit their website at http://www.baaqmd.gov for further information and air quality updates.
Today Governor Brown signed AB 291 into law, which will protect undocumented tenants (and communities perceived to be undocumented) from harassment and retaliation.
This is important legislation at a time when citizenship status is used as a means to displace current residents. A report by the Legal Aid Society of San Mateo County, Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto (CLSEPA) and the Anti-Eviction Mapping Project found that Latino women with children were the highest risk for eviction in the county. Displacement affects all of us, but communities of color are disproportionately targeted.
It is important that we stand together and not be divided by landlord tactics. Latino and undocumented communities stood up for all of us through their leadership in fights for rent control and just cause for eviction policies in Richmond and Mountain View. In Richmond, the fight for rent control was sparked by a building-wide tenant association of mostly undocumented residents, who organized and stood up to their landlord against rent increases. In Mountain View, the key leadership of the Day Workers Center is credited with being instrumental to the passage of rent control.
The Immigrant Tenant Protection Act goes into effect January 2018, and we celebrate the recognition that vulnerable members of our communities need and deserve additional protection.

AT Consumer Success Story August 2017
By Vincent Lopez
Recently, Connie Watanabe, a volunteer at Project Read in Menlo Park, called looking for a manual wheelchair for her consumer Antonio Tongia. She explained that he is very active and independent and needs a foldable chair that will fit his active lifestyle. Luckily, we just cleaned up a Quickie foldable manual wheelchair with carbon wheels that is light and sturdy. I called Antonio and emailed Connie the good news. Since it was getting close to the weekend, I gave Antonio my cell number to call me if he can make it out. Antonio showed up at the office Monday morning waiting outside the front door. I unloaded the chair from my truck to show him and it fit his needs well. He was using an older hospital type chair and this one was a hot rod compared to the chair he was using.
While performing the intake I found out Antonio was from Tonga and had Polio as a child. He explained that it hit a few children in each village as it passed through. Unfortunately, Tonga did not have the vaccine for Polio although New Zealand did at the time. Antonio toured the US when he was 21 with his Church band from Tonga. Antonio moved to Hawaii and gained US citizenship. Antonio moved to the “Mainland” and had a hard time for a while in the US. He was sleeping in his car and fishing on the bay. It was a rough time for Antonio, but his good attitude and faith created opportunities for him. Now Antonio has housing and works at the YMCA in East Palo Alto. From my conversation with Antonio and Connie, Antonio is the type of person who inspires others and has a great attitude on life always staying positive and enjoying life no matter what happens. I am glad I had the opportunity to meet Antonio and help him get a chair upgrade to fit his lifestyle.
