East Yard Communities for Environmental Justice will be hosting their first Fighting for Life Academy this month!
This academy will educate residents and community leaders on how air pollution impacts our communities & health, what policies and agencies are tasked with protection of the environment and residents, what skills we can build on to advocate for policy change/reform, and what we can do at home and beyond! Our goal is to build more leaders addressing environmental injustice in the Long Beach community and region.
