Perla Medina, an environmental justice leader from Old Town National City, passed away on September 20, 2019. EHC and the National City Community Action Team (CAT) extend their deepest condolences to Perla’s family. Perla first participated in SALTA, EHC’s leadership development training program.
For more than 14 years, she played a critical role in advancing our priorities in National City. Perla’s community organizing and frequent testimonies with the National City Council resulted in key EJ victories such as the Westside Specific Plan.
