Saturday: Come to Cafe Zoe and talk about The Almanac's 'Uneven Ground' series with us

We'll also celebrate the contributions of local students who supported the project

What did you think about The Almanac's three-part reporting project "Uneven Ground"? Do you have thoughts or feedback to share?

Almanac reporter Kate Bradshaw will answer questions and talk about her "Uneven Ground" series this Saturday, Oct. 12, at 1:30 p.m. at Cafe Zoe in Menlo Park. The event will also be a reception to recognize the efforts of her collaborators, including student photographers from Girls to Women in East Palo Alto. Their photographs are on display at the cafe throughout the month of October.

She also worked with Sequoia High School students, Nataly Manzanero, Mia Palacios and Ashley Barraza, to conduct more than 100 interviews in local communities exploring the following questions.

● Why do the communities of North Fair Oaks, East Palo Alto and the Belle Haven neighborhood of Menlo Park experience greater environmental health burdens than their neighboring jurisdictions of Atherton, Palo Alto and the rest of Menlo Park?

● How do these burdens impact residents' health?

● And what is being done to address those problems?

Read the series here:

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3.

Cafe Zoe is located at 1929 Menalto Ave. in Menlo Park.
