Welcome To El: An Intimate Night of Comedy with El Sanchez
Online; choose your time, $6-$22
In late February, El Sanchez found themself performing an intimate comedy show in Fremont. This show was filled with new material that has only been heard that one time. Little did Sanchez know that would be their last performance for a long time; they’ve decided to release the filmed event for anyone looking for a night out. And by “night out,” I mean a night at home where you do something special and pretend like you’re not at home. The world could definitely use more laughter right now, especially from a professional and a prized local talent. Tickets are on a sliding scale, so hopefully an option works for you.

What does self-care actually mean? It’s not all just bubble baths and face masks, and can and should incorporate a lot more strategies that take into account our nervous systems and our emotional regulation. This workshop will help you frame what self-care is in full and learn to approach it in a fruitful way, especially under our current circumstances. The class will brainstorm and discuss multiple strategies that you can implement in your day-to-day right away.

JOBS: Where did they go?
An American Mosaic: online; 9–10:30 a.m., free
It would be an understatement to say there is a lot going on in this country right now. Sometimes, the only way to process things is to talk about them. That’s what Di-a-logue, An American Mosaic, aims to do by bringing together people across race, age and experience to discuss affecting issues. This conversation will be about jobs: whether you have one or not, you’re anxious about it or not, or you simply have some thoughts and are eager to hear what others think. Respectful conversation can open so many doors, so here’s a great chance to be part of a big one.
