Last week, the US. Senate Special Committee on Aging held a hearing entitled, “Frauds, Scams and COVID-19: How Con Artists Have Targeted Older Americans During the Pandemic.” The hearing examined the exploitation of older Americans during the coronavirus pandemic by scammers.

The committee released their annual Fraud Book to arm older adults, their families and caregivers with tools and tips to prevent and respond to scams.

No one should experience the shame and loss that comes with having been exploited by a criminal. We have a sacred duty to protect seniors against these con artists.

Subject: Paid Survey Opportunity with Oakland Chinatown Chamber of Commerce and Link21

Do you or other members of our community:
• regularly travel throughout parts of Northern California?
• rely on public transit to get around or would use public transit more if it was more accessible?
• have comments or concerns about a potential transportation project in your neighborhood?

OCCC is partnering with the Link21 - a transportation program led by the Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) and Capitol Corridor - to get community input on a survey. Your feedback on the survey will help the Link21 Team understand how to define equity and priority populations - communities of focus for Link21 benefits. Hearing from communities is important to the Link21 Team, and they are especially excited to work with organizations like [organization name] that represent [FILL IN YOUR PRIORITY COMMUNITIES i.e. Black, Brown, immigrant, low to middle income etc.] communities who uses public transit or could be impacted by a transportation project like this.

Individuals (aged 16 and older) can sign up to take the survey, which should take less than 30 minutes to finish. The survey is available to take online (we’ll send the link) or a copy can be mailed to you. Each person who completes the survey will receive a $25 Visa gift card. Please plan to complete the survey within two weeks of receiving it.

MORE INFO:
Link21's aim is to transform passenger rail service to better connect the Northern California Megaregion, which ranges from Sacramento to Monterey, San Francisco to the Central Valley and points between. At the core of Link21 is a new transbay crossing between Oakland and San Francisco. Other potential improvements will be identified through community co-creation and technical work. This project is in the early planning stages and is set to be complete in 2040! Now is the time for our communities’ voices to be heard and for us to help shape the future of this work.
