If you want to know what is happening in your community and how you can get involved, you’re not alone. Dozens of residents show up at our community meetings each month to learn about making a positive difference in their neighborhoods. Read below and join us at the next meeting in your community.

What are community meetings?

A few times a month we goes into our core communities (Barrio Logan, National City, Sherman Heights and City Heights) to speak directly to residents about the issues affecting their neighborhood, the region that we live in and their families. Often we give a brief presentation and answer questions about hot community topics such as climate change, air pollution and transportation justice. We typically hold these meetings in the evening and provide dinner, childcare and translation for English, Spanish and Vietnamese.

Why do community meetings matter?

Community meetings bring together residents who want to improve their neighborhoods, build a better future for themselves and their children and join a movement. We hope to empower neighborhoods and unite communities to form a strong, persistent and informed voice that speaks up for environmental health issues and pushes for victories that make real change.
