Fourth Annual Richmond District Autumn Moon Festival

It’s my honor to once again join Supervisor Sandra Lee Fewer in hosting the San Francisco Richmond District Autumn Moon Festival. But this year, due to COVID-19, we are taking things online. While we will miss seeing you, it will still be fun. So, grab some mooncake and enjoy the entertainment, such as a wushu/kung fu performance, children’s dance and craft demonstrations.

DATE: Saturday, September 26
TIME: 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
WATCH: Facebook: One Richmond’s page 
or Zoom (Register here)

Autumn Moon Festivals have been held throughout Asia for well over 1,000 years. The celebrations are a time to reflect upon the bounty of the summer harvest, the fullness of the moon, and the myth of the immortal moon Goddess, Chang-O. The Moon Festival is often considered a "Chinese Thanksgiving" because of its celebration of gratitude and inclusion of abundant food - including the popular moon cake.

This event is co-hosted by the Richmond Neighborhood Center, the Clement Street Merchants Association and the Community Youth Center. Big thanks to them and our business sponsors for their generosity in helping to bring our community together virtually.

As a parent of kids in local public schools, I share concerns many of you feel about the future of the educational landscape for our children, educators, administrators and staff:

  • Are our kids learning what they will need to continue their education next year and beyond?
  • How do we ensure equal education for all students regardless of family circumstance, income or special needs?
  • Do educators have the resources and training they need to meet learning objectives?
  • Who’s providing children the social and mental health services they often receive at school?
  • Is adequate food available for our most vulnerable youth?
  • How will we plan for future learning if personal distancing and stay-at-home public health orders continue into the Fall or beyond? 

On Thursday, April 23rd at 2:00 pm, we’ll be holding a Virtual Town Hall to discuss these and other questions. You may submit questions through my website here, then join the live conversation on my Facebook page.

My guests will be SFUSD Commissioners Jenny LamAlison Collins, and Lowell High School science teacher Katherine Melvin, a San Francisco, Bay area native and UC Berkeley and SFSU alum. Kathy has been a classroom educator for 28 years, currently teaching AP Environmental Science at Lowell High School. She is a proud and active member of the United Educators of San Francisco, an reader of books, and walker of dogs. They will be on hand to answer questions about the work our educators and district have been doing on behalf of our students, as well as provide some insights. Additionally, they can speak to the status of educational programming, efforts to bridge gaps in technology, and other issues as distance learning becomes a new reality.

I hope you can tune in.
