NEW YEAR, NEW VISION

“I, TOO, SING AMERICA”

SFBATCO’S AWARD-WINNING PLAY IS BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND

SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO

“Research shows the psychological benefits of looking forward to something is helpful!”

SFBATCO’S AWARD-WINNING I, TOO, SING AMERICA, filled with inspiration, hope, and drama, gives a full view of the BIPOC experience beyond pain and oppression.  The vibrant and hopeful I, TOO, SING AMERICA hits the BRAVA Theater Center stage in San Francisco from January 28th-February 13th, 2022.  It is just the spark of inspiration that gives one something to look forward to and research shows that is a good thing. In a class of its own, the show is for all audiences, who are ready for the soulful symphony of poetry, music, and movement that is I, TOO, SING AMERICA.

A theater ticket to I, TOO, SING AMERICA is a great way to put a positive event on the calendar for the New Year.  Internationally recognized relationship expert, psychologist, author, and TV expert, Dr. Brenda Wade, recently commented on the significance of art and theater. “Art is the expression of the soul and theater was the first form of psychological healing on the planet,” said Dr. Brenda Wade.

As the Omicron variant has emerged, the Huffington Post article “The Psychological Benefits of Having Things to Look Forward To (https://www.huffpost.com/entry/psychological-benefits-thi…)” is worth a revisit as experts reinforce the message of forward thinking and action.  “Research suggests that living in the present moment and practicing mindfulness can increase happiness. “However, during particularly stressful moments in time, like our current pandemic, it can be more beneficial to have something to look forward to,” said Atlanta therapist LeNaya Smith Crawford.

I, TOO, SING AMERICA is fun, vibrant, thoughtful, intriguing and exhilarating-just to give a few adjectives,” said Rodney Earl Jackson, Jr., Broadway actor and Co-founder of SFBATCO with Co-founder Marcelo Javier. “I had a great interview with Melissa Culross of KCBS Radio that aired Christmas Day, and I was able to underscore that our SFBATCO team has hired over 20 cast members getting artists back to work, and incorporated the work of African American, Latino and Chinese American poets.  That is all good economic news combined with the inspirational message the show delivers.”

I, TOO, SING AMERICA, conceived, and musically composed by Othello Jefferson, is directed by Jamie Yuen-Shore, with movement direction by Christine Chung.  It is an inclusive song of America. Celebrating the diversity of BIPOC American life featuring an ensemble of 20 performers from a variety of backgrounds, I, TOO, SING AMERICA brings the poetry of great American authors such as Langston Hughes, Frances Chung, and Vince Gotera to life through original music and contemporary dance.

The consistent narrative of mainstream media focuses on the oppression and misery of the BIPOC experience.  Little is seen of ambition, competition, triumph, tradition, joy, love, hope and reflection. I, TOO, SING AMERICA gives a perspective beyond the normal limited narrative.

“In finding and curating the poems for this piece, we thought carefully about the topics and themes we wanted to feature, with the goal of embracing and championing representation in every part of the process and product,” said Jamie Yuen-Shore, Co-Creator/Director. “We wanted to find works that resonated with us, and especially moments or ideas we related to that we don’t often see on stage or hear in popular narratives.”

Born out of inspiration from Othello Jefferson, I, TOO, SING AMERICA, began as a love letter  for his two daughters to show that their lives can be as large as the creation in which they were born.  In the 2018-2019 season, the play won three Theatre Bay Area Awards including Best Musical, Outstanding Direction, and Outstanding Choreography.

I, TOO, SING AMERICA, puts a song in your heart to inspire you over and over again.  Take action now and get your tickets to this show that has a history of sold-out performances. Ticket prices range from a family-friendly $15-$40.

Reflect America Fellowship applications are open!

.

During the 12-month fellowship, the Reflect America fellow will work with journalists across the content divisions to find, cultivate and vet sources who are often missing from media coverage, ensuring that those voices make it into NPR’s news programs on the air, in podcasts and across all digital platforms. The fellow will spend the final three months of the fellowship reporting with one of NPR’s news teams.

“Past Reflect America fellows have left a huge mark on our stories and interviews over the last three years,” said Chief Diversity Officer Keith Woods. “They’ve found new sources, coached fellow journalists, set up methods for tracking sources and joined in on company-wide efforts to make source diversity a regular part of what we do.”

NPR’s first two fellows – Pien Huang and Ashish Valentine – both now work fulltime in the newsroom. Huang covers domestic health on the NPR Science Desk, and Valentine is a producer on the afternoon newsmagazine All Things Considered. Current fellow Miranda Mazariegos is completing the second of four rotations working with Weekend All Things Considered.

The Reflect America Fellowship builds on eight years of work to help NPR look and sound like America. In 2013, the network began tracking the race, ethnicity, gender and geographic location of its news sources on its two largest shows, Morning Edition and All Things Considered. NPR found that its sources were overwhelmingly white, male and located on the East and West coasts. And while NPR has made steady progress, more recent studies have found ongoing challenges.

Designed for an early- or mid-career journalist who wants to work and grow in one of the nation’s most dynamic newsrooms, the Reflect America Fellowship is one of three fellowships offered by NPR. The others are the Kroc Fellowship, a year-long program to train the next generation of public media journalists, and the Above the Fray Fellowship, dedicated to covering under-reported international stories.

The Reflect America Fellowship is a paid, full-time position that runs from August 2022 to August 2023. For more information, go to the Reflect America FAQ.

Subaru of America expands partnership with National Forest Foundation with commitment to plant one million trees

Subaru of America, Inc. and its retailers in California, and now with the support of Idaho, Oregon and Washington retailers, are proud to announce they will replant one million trees by 2022 in forests devastated by wildfire. In partnership with the National Forest Foundation, the Subaru Re-Foresting Project is expanding to Idaho, Oregon and Washington, in addition to existing efforts in California. These four states are among the hardest hit areas by wildfires.

“Following the devastation wrought by wildfires in California, we launched the Subaru Re-Foresting Project in 2019 as a way to help rebuild the lives of the animals and people who call the area home, and we are now expanding that commitment to include three additional states that have also been severely impacted by wildfires,” said Thomas J. Doll, President and CEO, Subaru of America, Inc. “Although wildfires continue to cause damage across the West, we hope that the expansion of replanting trees in more states contributes to the revitalization of the precious resources that are our public lands and national forests”

Subaru launched the Forester Re-Foresting Project in 2019 and kicked off the program by supporting the replanting of 500,000 trees in the areas impacted by the California wildfires. Now, teams of trained professionals from the U.S. Forest Service are headed to Idaho, Oregon and Washington to replant an additional 500,000 trees in those states.

“We are thrilled to expand our reforestation partnership with Subaru, planting a total of 1 million trees and supporting the post fire restoration of our national forests.” said Mary Mitsos, NFF President and CEO. “Through this donation, they are putting their initiatives to protect our environment for future generations into action.”
To commemorate the program and drive awareness towards improving forest regrowth efforts, in November, Subaru will launch a second-year advertising campaign showcasing the reforestation efforts across broadcast and digital platforms. The new commercial will run across national TV and digital programs.

The Subaru Re-Foresting Project is a part of Subaru Loves the Earth, the automaker’s Love Promise initiative focused on protecting Earth’s natural wonders for future generations. To learn more about Subaru Loves the Earth and how to support the program, visit Subaru.com/earth.
