The changing of the season brings an opportunity for renewal at BMC. Fresh off our third Annual meeting and the hiring of a new member organizer, we're applying new strategies for nurturing BMC leadership and citizen journalism.
Welcome Z Bell
Unsung Heroes
As a Center for Neighborhood Leadership apprentice and Public Allies fellow, Z Bell joins the BMC team as our new membership organizer-- so yes, you will be hearing from Z soon, if you haven't already! Most recently, Z focused on community-based safety and survival systems, as well as creating and providing leadership development and political education opportunities for queer, transgender and gender-non-conforming people of color (QT*PoC) at the Audre Lorde Project. Read more about Z here.
Over the past year, volunteers at Regeneración have been enriching BMC's work by making it easier for parents to participate. They have provided childcare at our parent leadership trainings, countless working group meetings and this year's annual meeting. We want to extend a huge thank you to all Regen volunteers for allowing us to support families in our organizing work, and send some special gratitude towards Sabine Bernards and Lauren Karchmer for their coordination and solidarity.

Third Rail Podcast
This month Assemblymember Diana Richardson and social justice advocate Marlon Peterson join us on Third Rail. We start by asking, are elected officials and community organizers on the same side of community development? Then we ask, what does neighborhood change mean to immigrant communities? Listen here and subscribe in iTunes.
