Program Officer Laura Fernandez Gains Inspiration from GreenLatinos
Rose Foundation Program Officer Laura Fernandez attended the annual GreenLatinos summit to learn about how environmental leaders in Latino communities are taking action for healthier and more just communities. Here is Laura’s account on her experience at the recent GreenLatinos Summit.

Meet the Rose Foundation Community: Shreya Shankar
Shreya Shankar works at Rooted In Resilience, a long-time partner of the Rose Foundation’s New Voices Are Rising program. Rooted in Resilience empowers communities to rise to the challenges of climate change. Their programs support local clean energy and urban farming, and train youth to prepare for the socio-economic effects of climate change.

Change is in the Air
Although California-based companies continue to pioneer electric vehicle technology, communities that can't afford a $70,000 Tesla Model S have yet to enjoy the benefits of gasoline-free vehicles. Residents of Arvin, CA, a city with higher poverty than 99 percent of California cities, face exposure to some of the highest levels of ozone and particulate matter in the state.  The Rose Foundation has provided a number of grants to organizations working in Arvin to create solutions for the city's air quality issues, including the City of Arvin and the Central California Environmental Justice Network

Thank You For Supporting Youth Leaders!
Thanks to you, our New Voices crowdfund campaign "Fired Up for the Change We Need!" raised more than $25,000 to support the 2018 Summer Climate Justice Youth Leadership Academy! You have ensured that our cohort of 16 New Voices students will have an impactful summer of environmental justice training and leadership development.
