In December 2017, Environmental Health Coalition Executive Director Diane Takvorian was honored as the KPBS and National Conflict Resolution Center’s community hero for environmental sustainability.

That honor culminated with a community conversation on January 11, 2018, between Diane and KPBS environmental reporter Erik Anderson.

More than 145 community members joined Diane and Erik as they talked about nearly 40 years of EHC’s work to protect public health and our communities burdened by toxic pollution. After their conversation, each table discussed three important questions among themselves and shared their answers with the crowd. Community members from Barrio Logan, National City, City Heights and Sherman Heights joined us and the conversation was translated into English, Spanish and Vietnamese.

Thank you for joining us. If you missed it, you can check out the Facebook Live video of Diane’s interview with Erik here.

In December 2017, National City Council unanimously approved a community garden for the neighborhood and granted oversight and maintenance to National-City based Mundo Gardens.

Mundo Gardens is a neighborhood garden program which cultivates wellness and empowers youth and families by combining nature, music and art.

Why Does A Community Garden Matter?

Since 2005, residents have expressed the need for access to fresh, healthy food and natural space owned and operated by the community, for the community.

The garden, soon to be located on the north side of Paradise Creek Park near Kimball Elementary School, aligns with the community’s vision for a healthy neighborhood.

In a place that ranks among the top five percent of communities in California most impacted by pollution, a locally owned and operated garden embodies our hope for a healthier future.

National City Council will finalize the implementation agreement with Mundo Gardens in 2018. The garden is expected to open in the summer of 2019.

SB 375 Community Leader 

When our region provides affordable and accessible transportation options - such as walking, biking and transit – we can reduce the pollution that we breathe every day, reduce the harmful impacts of climate change and improve the quality of life in our communities.

We recently brought this intention to the California Air Resources Board, where we told state leaders that we need strong laws, like SB 375, to reduce pollution in our neighborhoods.

What Is SB 375?

SB 375 is Senate bill that holds our regional transportation-planning agency, SANDAG, accountable for reducing its pollution. Our communities demanded SANDAG reduce its greenhouse gas emissions 25 percent by the year 2035.

Why SB 375 Matters to All of Us

For years, SANDAG’s transportation planning has long neglected to meet the needs of our families and neighborhoods. SB 375 would require SANDAG to ditch its current transportation plan in favor of one that significantly decreases greenhouse gas emissions and ensures our communities don’t continue to shoulder the burden of air pollution in the region and in the state.

Joined by a variety of organizations across the region, we submitted this letter to state leaders to explain why SANDAG’s operations and planning need to change.

Support a Strong SB 375 to Protect Our Communities

Many San Diego organizations have joined us to demand California decision makers hold SANDAG accountable. Learn more about SB 375 here.
