October 3rd’s The Color of Law Event Showed Us What the True Character of a Community Should Look Like


Thank you to the approximately 400 people who came to October 3rd’s presentation by Professor Richard Rothstein. It was a truly powerful evening, one that we believe brought greater light to the minds of both the not yet informed and the already somewhat informed alike.

Congratulations to Pastor Penny Nixon on Being Named Assembly District 22’s Woman of the Year!


One San Mateo sends its heartfelt congratulations to Pastor Penny Nixon for being named Assembly District 22’s Woman of the Year! Those who know Pastor Nixon know how much she gives of herself to so many different causes, from immigration to housing. Indeed, Pastor Nixon has been a strong ally with One San Mateo in our efforts to shape a more just and equitable housing environment. We are ever grateful to her for having gifted us with some of her much in demand time and moral leadership. So we can tell you from firsthand experience that there could hardly be anyone more deserving of this recognition. Three cheers for Pastor Nixon!
