On December 7 Human Agenda invites the community to its First Annual Celebration of Hope: A Fiesta for a Better Future at Casa Vicky’s. Human Agenda’s Community Impact Award will be presented to Sacred Heart Executive Director Poncho Guevara for the incomparable combination of service and advocacy of that organization on behalf of low-income residents, while its Human Rights Award will be presented to Sunnyvale Vice-mayor Jim Griffith for his pathbreaking efforts to create a sustainable Sunnyvale.
Hot food, live music, and a silent auction will punctuate this event honoring all community members who seek a better world. The accomplishments of Human Agenda in 2013 will be mentioned during a short program and a special birthday celebration will be held for board member Karen Lee Wald.
The event will take place from 6 to 9 PM in the casita, the exquisite house to the right of Casa Vicky’s, located at 792 E. Julian Street (17th & Julian) in San Jose.
For the past 10 years Human Agenda has held a Hunger Banquet each December based on the model of Oxfam America. After sitting on the floor for 10 years, eating the meager morsels that over 1 billion of the world’s people eat, and providing conscious programming on world hunger, Human Agenda has decided to move to a celebration of hope for a better future, strategically emphasizing those positive things we are for that we can all work on together in 2014, including democracy, environmental sustainability, and meeting the human needs of everyone through a sharing economy.
