Queen Green and her latest project in Pomana
Outside of my time singing and dancing to Queen Green’s eco-rhymes, I work for the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle).
I help lead youth and teacher engagement efforts to increase environmental literacy and achieve environmental justice.
Check out my latest project in Pomona below!
In 2013, the California Environmental Protection Agency created the Environmental Justice Compliance and Enforcement Working Group to focus on communities that contain multiple sources of pollution and are disproportionately vulnerable to its effects. The group is now known as the Environmental Justice Task Force.
One of the primary goals of the group is to provide community members opportunities for input on potential environmental justice concerns and the implementation of remedies. The task force also conducts initiatives to increase local compliance with environmental laws in targeted areas. CalRecycle has played a role in initiatives in Fresno, Los Angeles, and Oakland.
