For years now, dump sites like Western Environmental and Lawson Dump have disturbed neighboring trailer parks and schools in the east Coachella Valley city of Mecca. Although dumping has ceased, the dump sites have definitely made their presence felt throughout the region. Environmental activist, Eduardo Guevara, explains what it is like to live among landfills and endure the effects of what the landfills have left behind.

Coachella Unincorporated is a Youth Media Startup in the East Coachella Valley, funded by the Building Healthy Communities Initiative of The California Endowment and operated by New America Media in San Francisco. The purpose of the project is to report on issues in the community that can bring about change. Coachella Unincorporated refers to the region youth journalists cover but also to the unincorporated communities of the Eastern Valley with the idea to “incorporate” the East Valley into the mainstream Coachella Valley mindset.
