Meet the Rose Foundation Community: Marybelle Nzegwu
Marybelle Nzegwu has served on our Northern California Environmental Grassroots Fund funding board since 2015, and we were excited to welcome her onto the Rose Foundation board of directors earlier this year. After graduating from UC Hastings College of the Law, Marybelle began her legal career at the Center on Race, Poverty & the Environment. In 2017 she founded her own consulting firm, Environmental Justice Solutions.

Plastic Pollution Meets Its Match
The World Health Organization startled the world this year with its report on finding tiny plastic pieces in 83% of the world's tap water. At sea, reports of marine life killed from the ingestion of or entanglement in plastic debris continue to reveal the negative effects of plastic pollution on aquatic ecosystems. All One Ocean is using a Rose Foundation grant to mobilize youth to clean up beaches in several counties in and around the Bay Area.



FIRED UP FOR THE CHANGE WE NEED!
Support the 2018 Summer Climate Justice Youth Leadership Academy! Low-income neighborhoods in Oakland are burdened with many environmental challenges, including toxic pollution from heavy industry, poor air and water quality, and lack of green space. Young people living in these areas are among those most impacted by this pollution, suffering from asthma and other serious health issues. New Voices Are Rising knows that it’s these very young people, who experience environmental burdens on a daily basis, who are the best leaders for change!

Meet the Rose Foundation Community: Laura Fernandez
Each month we're featuring a member of the Rose Foundation community. We hope that through these interviews, you get to know a little more about the dynamic people that make the Rose Foundation's work possible. Laura Fernandez joined the Rose Foundation staff in 2016, and is a program officer managing several of the Rose Foundation's grantmaking programs.
