SF District Attorney
Is Black History Speaker

San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris — the first woman ever elected to this position and daughter of Berkeley Lab scientist Shyamala Harris — visits the Lab next Monday to deliver a speech commemorating Black History Month. The talk begins at noon in the Building 50 Auditorium. Harris says her parents, both active in the civil rights movement, instilled in her "a strong commitment to justice and public service." The talk is sponsored by the Lab's Workforce Diversity Office.

Changes To Come
In Former EPB Area

During February, two changes will be made at the former Bevatron Experimental Particle Beam Hall site between Buildings 50 and 64. Additional parking will be added in one area while another section will be used as a staging zone for the Molecular Foundry construction. Once these changes are implemented, drivers should use caution when using Alvarez Road due to new traffic entering and exiting the former Bevatron EPB Hall area. Go here for more information on these changes.
