February is Black History Month, a time to reflect on the experiences, history, and culture of Black America and its importance to America's history.

That's why the state Assembly passed Assembly Concurrent Resolution 6 to encourage all citizens to celebrate Black History Month by recognizing the contributions African Americans have made to our communities.

Please join me at one of our local events honoring Black History Month:

Please join me for the 9th Annual Jingle Tails on Tuesday, December 13, starting at 5:30 p.m. I'm hosting the event in partnership with the Oakland Zoo and the Alameda County Community Food Bank. Just go to the Main Gate area of the Oakland Zoo located at 9777 Golf Links Road in Oakland. Families will receive free admission to the zoo. We encourage you to bring a food donation.

According to Alameda County Community Food Bank, one in six Alameda County residents rely on the donations provided at the food bank – roughly 50,000 people per week. You can help end hunger in Alameda County by donating a can of tuna, a jar of peanut butter or other non-perishable food item at the Jingle Tails Holiday Event.

This year's much anticipated ZooLights will feature larger-than-life, energy-efficient LED light displays and holiday music at more than 120 animal structures. Thanks to ZooLights' green technology, you can enjoy the festivities and the light displays that mirror the Oakland Zoo's year-round animal residents.

Tuessday, December 13
5:30 to 7 p.m.

I look forward to seeing during this fun-filled evening to help end hunger in California.
