Council District 4 Town Hall

District 4 Berkeley Councilmember Kate Harrison is holding a Town Hall with Special Guest Deputy Mayor Kriss Worthington. . Going to town halls is a very effective way to communicate with your local elected officials, and this is a great opportunity to lift up the issues you care about that are affecting your community.

The Councilmember will be discussing Housing, Government Accountability, and Police Reform. The District 4 office will be discussing what we've done, what we're doing, and what comes next. As always, community input on these ongoing initiatives are encouraged and valued.

If you live in District 4 (Downtown Berkeley), your Councilmember is Kate Harrison. All constituents from the City of Berkeley are welcome to attend. You can also look up what Council District you live in using this LINK.

Reflections of Light:

A Night of Songversation with Annie Anton

We all have a story to share, and we hold within our beings a unique expression to reflect - an Important Spark of Light. Through our vulnerability, our humanness, our pain and our joy, we reflect those pieces, weaving the tapestry together and giving each other deeper insights into Who We Are. Now, more than ever, it is time to share, to be unafraid in letting our unique light be fully seen and expressed.
