Organizations supporting the rights of immigrants and refugees:

National Immigration Law Center: Established in 1979, the National Immigration Law Center (NILC) is one of the leading organizations in the U.S. exclusively dedicated to defending and advancing the rights of low-income immigrants.

National Immigration Forum: The National Immigration Forum is one of the leading immigrant advocacy organizations in the country, with a mission to advocate for the value of immigrants and immigration to the nation.

New York Immigration Coalition: The New York Immigration Coalition aims to achieve a fairer and more just society that values the contributions of immigrants and extends opportunity to all. The NYIC promotes immigrants' full civic participation, fosters their leadership, and provides a unified voice and a vehicle for collective action for New York's diverse immigrant communities.

Arab American Family Support Center (New York City): The Arab-American Family Support Center is a 501(c)3 non-profit, non-sectarian organization that provides culturally and linguistically sensitive services to immigrant communities throughout New York City.

Action NYC: ActionNYC connects New Yorkers to free, safe immigration legal help. You can make an appointment to learn your immigration legal options and get immigration application assistance. There are ActionNYC sites in all five boroughs. Appointments are required. Your appointment will be in your language.

Immigration Equality is the leading LGBTQ immigrant rights organization in the country. It provide s advice and legal services to thousands of LGBTQ and HIV-positive immigrants seeking refuge, fair treatment, and freedom in the United States. The work is truly lifesaving because there are nearly 80 countries around the world where it is a crime to be LGBTQ, with consequences up to and including the death penalty. For this reason, Immigration Equality fights to obtain asylum in the United States for LGBTQ and HIV-positive refugees - with a remarkable 99% win rate.

Kids in Need of Defense (KIND): KIND serves as the leading organization for the protection of children who enter the US immigration system alone and strives to ensure that no such child appears in immigration court without representation. We achieve fundamental fairness through high-quality legal representation and by advancing the child's best interests, safety and well-being.

Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF): AALDEF is a national organization that protects and promotes the civil rights of Asian Americans by combining litigation, advocacy, education, and community organizing. Issues / focus include immigrant rights, civic participation and voting rights, economic justice for workers, language access to services, educational equity, housing and environmental justice, and the elimination of anti-Asian violence, police misconduct, and human trafficking.

Make the Road New York (MRNY): MRNY builds the power of Latino and working class communities to achieve dignity and justice through organizing, policy innovation, transformative education, and survival services.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:23pm spodiodi:

any dust? i'm afraid to look at the news the past few days, for the most part (forgive me for asking something google could have answered, if i were more brave/less exhausted)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 6:26pm chresti:

Warm and bright, 80s, blue sky, doesn't look too hazy from the hazy kitchen window. Supposed to cool down tomorrow with a pacific northwest flow.
Avatar 6:26pm TDK60:

Chresti, we just had a heavy rain downpour in NYC. We need more rain though. I think we're too far north for the dust storm. I've heard there's also an idiot wind but across the whole country. // Spodiodi- I get tape jokes all the time. No problem; my cassette deck is in working order, all else is trivial.
  6:29pm JW:

Great show so far. Nice one for sitting out on the back deck relaxing with a drink. Cheers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm spodiodi:

chresti, that sounds tolerable. and may the flow... flow
TDK, cool, thanks :) i got it out of my system

To be honest, I am loath to go outside unless I have to, whenever the temps are above 80F.@spodi
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Hadn't entertained notion we could get dust or haze up North here - but I suppose atmosphere is just that nutty...
Playlist wonderful Rob.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:31pm spodiodi:

i'm with you, chresti. 68-70 is what i like best. it's too chilly in sf. we've had the heat on today (as we did yesterday, etc)

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Reminds me of what I call the 'San Francisco vibrato' that the Bay Area Psych players had.
  6:47pm Peter from Dover NJ:

Damn, Rob, this is really psychedelic.

There you go, Handy has proof.

Too bad Franco's not here to join the SF vibrato discussion, he's out hunting tacos.
  6:59pm Peter from Dover NJ:

SF vibrato technique was definitely a thing. FWIW, one of my friends differentiates between psychedelic ro k and acid rock thusly: psychedelic has 1 electric and 1 acoustic guitar; acid rock is 2 electric guitars. Thoughts?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:03pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Psychedelic is anything you listen to on acid.
From Syd Barrett redefining Songwriting w/ one somewhat rhythmical guitar - to The Beatles overdubbing a 40 piece orchestra a few times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:05pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

But - the transitions from FolkRawk (bYRdS) to Psych
- & then from Psych to Metal are favorite things of mine to ponder...Clapton saying the Bay Area groups sounded like Peter, Paul & Mary w/ Electrics...
  7:07pm Carmichael:

Heya Rob and trannies. Good music for cleaning pool filters.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:07pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Acid Rawk implies the Psych to Metal transition
- where the transition from FolkRawk lead into the Studio more perhaps. (Playing Live actually became impossible for The Beatles. & they got worse @ it...)
  7:07pm JW:

Liking this one too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:19pm spodiodi:

hi Carmichael
  7:22pm Peter from Dover NJ:

I've been cooking, so I missed some of this. If I think Yardbirds > Led Zep, then yeah, I could see acid to metal progression. But sure that Black Sabbath, who I adore, would fit that.

Carmichael, how's the weather, still in the 100s?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:32pm Franco Twinkie:

San Francisco embraced Cream which in turn smoothed the way for them to conquer the rest of America. Clapton was right about the Peter, Paul and Mary with electric guitars comparison, but I think of that as a good thing instead of a put down

& of course RobW digressing thru a playlist was gonna be a rich & diverse delight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Franco Twinkie:

Me too Mr. Rabbit! The first place I ever saw Fresh Cream was at a little record store across the street from The Long Shoremans Hall in 1967. It was right next to an advanced copy of Are You Experienced, which was still a month away from domestic release. I remember thinking: This must be the new thing - groups with three guys.

man i miss living (near) and working in the mission (esp. the taquerias) -- do you or chresti have a favorite in sf? i'd have to go with el farolito on 24th and mission -- followed by cancun, between 18th and 19th

I can understand your apprehension, Spo'. Chresti is already making noised about going up later in summer. I'm not so sure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm spodiodi:

i can't picture it, Franco -- it's been a while since i've walked down mission st... but will keep it in mind, for sure. i think Pancho VIlla was my first-ever SF burrito, back in '94 (well, proper burrito -- there wasn't anything like them back east, in my little world)... but el farrolito was religious. i probably have had more from cancun since, out of convenience (closer walk at lunch, if i wasn't hitting the very "clean" place (El TEpa) that was even closer)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:27pm spodiodi:

man, i used to have a burrito for lunch (and often dinner) for many years, and it's been as many since -- and i miss the hell out of it -- there is nothing to eat near me like that now

There are always lines for the Tacos El Bronco truck in my neighborhood in Sunset Pk, Bklyn, even during quarantine. Maybe especially during quarantine. It's good, but I usually try to give some other places some business too.

we used to order japanese here, but i don't think we've had any food delivered in at least 10+ years now
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:30pm Franco Twinkie:

Yup, La Coroneta.

You must be a hella good cook if you cook every day!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:31pm spodiodi:

looked on google -- maybe i have seen it, but haven't eaten there yet
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:32pm spodiodi:

lol -- or have a really limited diet, and like routines (and hate them) very much
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:33pm spodiodi:

and i'm not alone -- i do probably less than half of the effort
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:34pm Franco Twinkie:

That's good. All the blame is not on you if it turns out awful.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:36pm spodiodi:

so i pretty much make oatmeal and rice every day (i should make a cookbook)
Napalito is new to me too, chresti -- and your son sounds really nice :) i'm not unable to go out though -- i'd feel guilty and undeserving

It's spoon-cuttinglu humid here. Blargh. Might have to eat inside tonight.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm spodiodi:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm spodiodi:

Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:43pm chresti:

Nopalito has something for all of your diatary needs spodi, there might be one closer to you (if it hasn't closed, the one near Divisadero is open, though. He doesn't mind, they're vegetarians, mostly. He's sending me more Acme bread.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:43pm spodiodi:

Rob, the show has been great -- i can't believe it's nearly over
thank you!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:45pm spodiodi:

the name reminds me of Napoli pizza, which was where i ended up many nights, when i live in the tenderloin
what kind of bread do you get/like/does he send?
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:47pm chresti:

Whenever we visit, we go to Burma Star. Cranberry walnut, mmmmm.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:47pm spodiodi:

good to know. i'm glad most taquerias seem to have options
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:48pm radioronan:

former mission dweller/sf-ian. Pancho Villa has been my #1 for burritos and chips & salsa since late 80's. Puerto Alegre for margaritas, people watching and group hangs. El Farlito for cheap & delicious 3am tacos and pickles(although i dont think they are open til 4a anymore). La Rondalla (rip) for strong cheap margaritas and a touch of food poisoning to keep you strong. La Cumbre for carne asada.

You guys are killing me with this SF Mexican food talk! Why won't dinner just be ready already?!
Avatar 8:50pm TDK60:

You all made me hungry, went to kitchen.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:50pm radioronan:

Nopalito is excellent! expensive but excellent. Have been to 9th ave many times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:51pm spodiodi:

Puerto Alegre was our pre/during-drinking in the mission spot
lots of liquid, but really great
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:52pm spodiodi:

radioronan, maybe we've met ;)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:52pm chresti:

There's a place I like on Bryant X 21st, (I think), don't remember the name.
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:52pm radioronan:

And Axum ethiopian on lower haight - I started going there when they opened..fantasic sweet place & people.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm spodiodi:

hha, Handy -- you're always talking about delicious eats ;) take that
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:53pm Ike:

Oh wow, Burma Star sounds great. Finding Burmese in NYC is actually really difficult. There is a place way out in Rego Park, Queens that is supposed to be great, and I'm seeing search results for a new one in Crown Heights that I've never heard of. I think that's it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:53pm spodiodi:

Rob, thank you again -- sorry for all the yakkin <3
great show
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 8:54pm chresti:

ooh, will tell my son, if he doesn't know already, radio.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:55pm spodiodi:

La ROndalla always had better/more frequently installed for lengthy times while eating kind of mariachi too -- so many blury memories, but so happy -- such a great place
