Borderless Art Exhibit
Imagining More is proud to announce the recipients for their first Borderless Art Scholarship. The Borderless Art Project was created in an attempt to examine the differences in cultural climates experienced by Mexican and American teenage women participating in arts and sports. Students from San Francisco, California, and San Luis Potosi, Mexico, were chosen to create an art project that best exemplified the meaning of being a female athlete. Through the project, both students expressed their views about women’s roles in sports and shared their personal experiences as athletes. Come and have a chance to meet two inspiring young ladies, Mandy and Rosa, talk to them about their motivations, learning experiences, and challenges while creating their awe-inspiring projects.

Eliana speaks out!
Ross Mirkarimi was a founder of the SF Green Party. He was a registered Green while he was an SF Supervisor. Then he ran for a different office, and won. Before he could be installed as the new SF Sheriff, he and his wife had a domestic dispute at their home that left a bruise on Eliana's arm. They have since reconciled that dispute. Then Mayor Lee tried to stop Ross from taking on his new job. That too became history and Ross is our SF Sheriff. Now hear Eliana in her own voice.
