Come one, come all! From all neighborhoods. Palo Alto embraces diversity. Saturday let’s show we do for the business people that serve us. We won’t put up with anyone disrespecting owners or employees because of race.

In Barron Park and Ventura, the small retail and commercial businesses and restaurants that line ECR are invaluable to residents.

Bring your kids too - there is a fun play area right by the rally site! Then enjoy lovely Bol Park - visit the donkeys at the far end across the creek (make sure your dog is leashed). Ignore the blue booms in the creek - that’s from the VAs diesel spill you’ve read about - also of interest to see actual environmental cleanup in action. Keep your eyes peeled to see all sorts of wildlife that lives in and hangs out around the creek.

BTW - the reporter mistakenly stated Councilmember Kou lives in Barron Park - she no longer does, but will always be an honorary resident and still the go-to person when a problem arises.

I heard this from Anna Eshoo during an Anti Asian Hate rally in Mt View a few months back. "Diversity is our Strength, Unity is our Power". I think we need both.

According to the other local paper, PAPD identified the perp but declined to charge him. WHY?
