This is a translation of a quote from former Mexican President, Benito Juarez.

"Respect for the rights of others is peace"

We believe this is such a relevant message at this time.

Santa Clara County Resource Center - Brian Evans.mp4

We are taking you back, not so far, on this Throwback Thursday to the video interview with Brian Evans!

Former Reentry Resource Center client Brian Evans uses his past to mentor peers towards community integration and successful employment opportunities.

Brian Evans, Lead Peer Mentor at Goodwill of Silicon Valley’s New Opportunity Work Program (NOW), helps prepare reentry clients from jail and prison for employment. He’s an excellent mentor. He’s optimistic, has a passion for helping people and knows intimately how it feels to be estranged from family, addicted and incarcerated. He’s spent most of his life in and out of the system.

Share your thoughts with us!

Stay Safe, Stay Healthy!

Tom Misch - It Runs Through Me (feat. De La Soul) [Official Video]

COVID-19 & SIP have impacted our lives in various ways.

As we start a new day and a new week, let's remember all that remains in our lives.

I believe this song by Tom Misch, It Runs Through Me, may remind us that there are certain things that will not be taken away from us no matter what the circumstances are.

We will get through this and we'll do it together 💪🏾

Essential workers across the country are struggling to balance personal/family health with economic hardship during these uncertain times. Job losses, hunger, illness, childcare, housing, and fear for the future put tremendous stress on many, especially our local farmworker families.

Our friends at the San Benito County LULAC Council 2890 ask that we stand with the farmworker community and support their efforts to raise money for hoodies and footwear for farmworkers via the following link: https://www.paypal.com/donate/?token=4r5vVx45JIzwlJ5oFznvxJz2ml-OLrB31XNNE3BuDsS3ZmQ7r4gLEQgucnj71sPaVFlofW&country.x=US&locale.x=US

Additionally, the Community Foundation of San Benito County opened up its doors for any sweatshirts, baseball caps, socks or donation dropoff. They are at 829 San Benito Street Suite 200 in Hollister.

In collaborative spirit,

The SVL Leadership Team
