A Climate Change Rally in San Jose, California, April 29, 2017

On Saturday, April 29, I was thinking of relaxing and spending the morning with my wife. When she told me that she was getting her hair cut, I thought maybe I can ride my bike to the Climate Change rally in San Jose. From my place, it’s a short 20 minute ride.

While I was there, I met some friends from a Presbyterian Church group that I enjoy attending. They are strong advocates for the environment and I was happy to exchange hugs and catch up on what they have been doing.

I had a lot of fun taking photos of the event. Here are some of the photos I took of the Climate Change rally in San Jose, California.

About angelolopez

I’ve wanted to be an artist all my life. Since I was a child I’ve drawn on any scrap of paper I could get a hold of. When I went to San Jose State University, I became more exposed to the works of the great fine artists and illustrators. My college paintings were heavily influenced by the humorous illustrations of Peter De Seve, an illustrator for the New Yorker magazine. I also fell under the spell of the great muralists of the 1930s, especially Thomas Hart Benton and Diego Rivera. I graduated with a degree in Illustration. Angelo Lopez has had illustrations published in Tikkun Magazine, the Palo Alto Daily News and Z Magazine. From April 2008 to May 2011, Angelo's cartoons were regularly published in the Tri-City Voice, a weekly newspaper that covers the Fremont, Hayward, Milpitas, Neward, Sunol and Union City areas in California. He does a political webcomic starring his cartoon character Jasper for the progressive blogsite Everyday Citizen. Since December 2011, Angelo does a regular weekly political cartoon for the Philippines Today, a Filipino American newspaper based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Since March 2013, he has also contributed cartoons to the Manila Mail, a Filipino American newspaper based in Washington D.C. Angelo is a member of the Sunnyvale Art Club, and the Northern California chapter of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. During the 1990s, he was a member of the part-timer workers SEIU unit in the city of Sunnyvale. Angelo won the 2013, 2015 and 2016 Sigma Delta Chi award for editorial cartooning for newspapers with a circulation under 100,000. He has also won the 2016 RFK Book and Journalism Award for Editorial Cartoons. Angelo won first prize for the Best of the West contest in 2016 and third prize in 2017. Angelo is married to Lisa Reeber. They enjoy taking walks, watching movies and hanging out with their nieces.

  1. What great signs! My husband Pat rode his bike yesterday in a ride to commemorate the opening of the Rosebud Bike Trail here. He ended up on the Wichita State campus where people had booths set up to protest Rump and other such things. He said it was exhiliarating to see such activism. I wish I could have gone with him, but my bike-riding days are long gone.
