Attorney Julian Davis recently ran for the position of District 5 Supervisor in San Francisco. Throughout his career, he has been an advocate for social, economic, and environmental justice and has served on the boards of several civic organizations. Julian Davis is also affiliated with international humanitarian groups such as ReAllocate. The nonprofit organization ReAllocate invites support of its solar energy project in Uganda. Although the area possesses a fair amount of solar technology, the current number of producing installed panels do not provide sufficient electricity for the needs of the population. In addition, many of the people lack the technical skills to repair the equipment. Others lack basic understanding of solar technology. In order to assist the people of Uganda, ReAllocate aims to fund the efforts of Emi Watanabe and Andres Maxell-Parish. The two 3D-printing experts from California propose traveling to the country to visit rural areas in Uganda and educate the people about the use of 3D printing for improving solar technology. ReAllocate also seeks designers to create a new PV charge controller to act as a training tool.
Julian Davis is a lawyer who graduated magna cum laude from the UC Hastings College of Law. A traveler in his free time, Julian Davis recently visited Antigua, Puerto Rico, France, and Italy. Part of Ibero-America located in the Caribbean, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico offers multiple attractions, including the following: - No Passport Required. Technically part of the United States, Puerto Rico opens its doors to US citizens wanting a Caribbean vacation and/or to explore the island’s culture without requiring them to produce a passport. - Bio Bays. Illuminated at night by single-celled dinoflagellates, bio bays are an uncommon attraction (there are only eight such bays in the world), so Puerto Rico’s three bio bays provide travelers with a rather unique opportunity to view one of nature’s wonders. - The Beast. Adventure seekers should consider trying The Beast, a zip line that holds the record as the world’s highest. Lying on their stomach in a Superman pose, zip liners can achieve speeds as fast as 80 mph.
