Fairfax EcoFest

  • Fairfax, CA

Live Music, Arts & Crafts, Organic & BioDynamic Beer & Wine, Vendors, Kids Activities & More...

The Fairfax Ecofest, held alongside the traditional Fairfax Festival, is fun for all! Come up to the Pavilion and share your ideas with exhibitors, shop for organic goods and services, indulge in organic food, view art, explore our interactive activities…and there’s a whole field of fun for the kids, too!

Saturday and Sunday, don’t miss organic beer and wine tasting featuring a wide variety of local and international producers. New this year: an opportunity to sample cheese, olive oil and chocolate! The Ecofest Music Stage hosts local performers to keep you entertained from noon to 6:30pm.

Since its inception in 2004, Ecofest has showcased significant changes in public awareness and behavior. The Town of Fairfax has long been a leader in the sustainability movement. By passing a pesticide notification ordinance, forming the open space committee, limiting chain stores and adopting styrofoam-free and nuclear free ordinances,  Fairfax is a model for communities wanting to make a difference at the local level. Fairfax has also been in the center of nationwide issues including the GMO-free campaign, efforts to “Stop the Spray” in Marin, the voter approved ban on plastic takeout bags and most recently, the moratorium on Smart Meters.

North Bay Jobs with Justice Annual Fundraiser

  • Oddfellows Hall

This June we are excited to honor our local workers building the labor movement in the North Bay, including the Superior Court Workers of SEIU 1021 and local community leader Gervacio Peña, Board President of the Graton Day Labor Center (El Centro Laboral de Graton). We are also excited to be bringing labor leader Maria Elena Durazo of UNITE HERE International and presenting our vision for the work ahead.

Please join us for an evening of celebration and camaraderie!

Our Keynote, Maria Elena Durazo:

Durazo got her start amongst farmworkers. As the daughter of Mexican immigrants, she spent summers in the Central Valley fields picking peaches, strawberries, and grapes. In 1985, she earned a law degree from the People's College of Law in Los Angeles, before beginning her involvement in the labor movement as an organizer for the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union. In 1983, she joined the Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees Union (HERE) Local 11. In 1989 Durazo won the local presidency with 85% of the vote becoming one of the first Latinas to lead a major union. She was later elected to the executive board of HERE International Union in 1996, and in 2004 was elected Executive Vice President of UNITE-HERE International. On April 6, 2017, Durazo announced that she intends to run for the 24th district of the California State Senate in 2018, when the incumbent,

Capitol Weekly named Maria Elena the third most influential non-elected California official in its 2010 Top 100 List.

She was named Most Valuable Local Labor Leader by The Nation magazine in their 2014 Progressive Honor Roll.

Los Angeles Times’ featured stories reporter Joe Mozingo wrote that “Maria Elena Durazo is probably the single most influential individual in Los Angeles politics.”

Food Empowerment Project seeks to create a more just and sustainable world by recognizing the power of one’s food choices. We encourage choices that reflect a more compassionate society by spotlighting the abuse of animals on farms, the depletion of natural resources, unfair working conditions for produce workers, the unavailability of healthy foods in communities of color and low-income areas, and the importance of not purchasing chocolate that comes from the worst forms of child labor.

Come celebrate our 10 year anniversary!

Join us for an evening of celebration with delicious vegan food and drinks, beautiful music, inspirational speakers, silent auction, and special gift bags for the first 100 attendees.

Bryan Stevenson: “America’s young Nelson Mandela.”

  • JCC SF

Bryan Stevenson is one of the country's most visionary legal thinkers and social justice advocates. A MacArthur fellow, he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a law practice dedicated to defending some of America’s most rejected and marginalized people. A founding leader of the movement against mass incarceration in the United States, he recently served on President Obama's task force on 21st-century policing. His memoir, Just Mercy, is the story of a young lawyer fighting on the frontlines of a country in thrall to extreme punishments and careless justice. It is an inspiring story of unbreakable humanity in the most desperate circumstances, and a powerful indictment of our broken justice system and the twisted values that allow it to continue.

Stevenson has received numerous awards including the MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Grant and the NAACP Image Award for Best Non-Fiction, and was named one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People for 2015. He is a tenured law professor at New York University School of Law.

(Bryan Stevenson is) “America’s young Nelson Mandela.”

An Evening of Spoken Word and Live Jazz
with Robert Pinsky and Laurence Hobgood

Robert Pinsky, arguably America’s greatest living poet and the only one in history to serve three terms as U.S. Poet Laureate, brings his verse to life in PoemJazz, an innovative dialogue between poetry and music with Grammy-winning jazz pianist Laurence Hobgood. Elegant and tough, vividly imaginative, Pinsky’s poems have earned praise for their wild musical energy and ambitious range. PoemJazz intertwines language and instrument, emphasizing the physical and melodic qualities of voice, as well as the way jazz improvisation can sometimes seem to speak. The result is an organic new whole of sound and sense.

"In their tremendous PoemJazz collaboration, Robert Pinsky and master musician Laurence Hobgood establish a wholly simpatico artistic partnership."

Sex, Jews and Videotape

  • JCC SF

What the Movies Reveal About Jewish Sexuality

Film and television have become our most potent media for portraying sexuality, from gentle romance to erotic desire to full-throttle lust. But when it comes to Jewish characters on screen, the movies’ uninhibited love affair with sex gets complicated. In this fun and revealing clip-filled talk, film curator Peter L. Stein examines how Jewish sexuality and the Jewish body have been portrayed on screen. From tales of forbidden love in Orthodox settings (Yentl, Eyes Wide Open), to the neurotics and sexual overachievers of Woody Allen’s films, to the frontiers of queer sexuality in Sandra Bernhard’s characters and television’s Transparent, Jewish sex on screen has had to run a gauntlet of taboos, stereotypes and pigeonholes that make us wonder

Peter L. Stein is a Peabody Award-winning documentary filmmaker and frequent film writer, programmer and presenter. A former Executive Director of the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival for eight years, he currently serves as Senior Programmer of Frameline, the San Francisco International LGBTQ Film Festival.

For thousands of years, the people of the Jewish diaspora have carried their culinary traditions and kosher laws throughout the world. In the United States, this has resulted primarily in an Ashkenazic table of matzo ball soup and knishes, brisket and gefilte fish. But there are many other Jewish cultures whose delicious culinary stories are less well known here.
