Coachella Unincorporated is working on a special report about transportation hurdles for those living in the East Valley. Check out our “trailer!” Tony Aguilar and Jesus Vargas’ experience riding the Sun Line from the Thermal Post Office to College of the Desert, to see what a lot of east valley residents have to go through every morning while attending college.
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.
