April meeting – San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria – Chardá Bell-Fontenot – and other local education officials

We’ve got another fantastic meeting in store for you Wednesday, April 7, 7 pm. We’ll kick things off with San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria; he’ll talk with us about the big issues facing the city, including reopening, homelessness, housing and more.

Following Mayor Gloria, we’ll hear from local school officials, to talk about reopening and the other major issues facing education in our district.

Chardá Bell-Fontenot, vice president of the La Mesa-Spring Valley board, joins us after being targeted by racist attacks following her comments equating early school reopening with white supremacy and slavery.

We’ll also speak with Gregg Robinson, trustee for the San Diego County Office of Education Governing Board; Richard Barrera, president of the San Diego Unified School District Governing Board; and Cheryl Robertson, Vice President of the Lemon Grove School Board and a board member for our club.

Meeting starts at 7 pm on Zoom, with social time at 6:30 pm. We’re going to try something new for that social half-hour; rather the usual delightful conversational free-for-all, we’re going to ask members to share things they want to talk about: Politics, family events, gardening triumphs, hiking and activities—whatever’s on your mind. Kind of an open mike night. We’ve all been feeling isolated for a year, let’s use that time to make connections.

Here’s the Zoom URL.

And until then, here are three ways you can support Ms. Bell-Fontenot:
