Our community leaders are rays of sunshine shedding light on issues that warrant long-overdue environmental justice for our neighborhoods. Join us on April 20, 2017 to celebrate 20 years of leadership empowerment through our SALTA program, training more than 2,500 local residents to lead as organizers, advocates, spokesmen and women. With lifted voices, we rise from the ground up, building our movement and carrying the torch as true leaders united for justice.
