Central Valley Community Organizing and Partnerships
Through education and outdoor activities, we work with under-served riverside communities to foster greater awareness about issues relating to river and environmental social justice issues. Our goals are to:
- Make the issues facing the river relevant to residents. The river and the environment aren’t always the first thing on your mind when you’re struggling to make ends meet, but the health of the river and the health of the community are intricately connected.
- Create safe spaces where local children can play and improve street safety
- Improve water quality and cleanliness at local riverside parks through monthly clean ups
We strive to empower parents and residents to advocate and participate in local and citywide planning efforts for the improvement of their neighborhoods, parks, and river, in order to create community of stewards who will take care of their neighborhood, their environment, and their river.
