Senior Program Director, Julio Garcia, and graduates of our Environmental Justice Parent Academy are interviewed in this KQED story about sea level rise in East Palo Alto. “If we didn’t have COVID-19, [climate change] is the number one crisis that we are facing,” Garcia says. “As a community of color, people who are workers, it is really important. Because if houses start flooding, where are we going to be moving to?” Read or listen to this story in English. Read this story in Spanish.
