Story Corps
Youth United for Community Action

In the underserved community of East Palo Alto, neighbors increasingly feel the impacts of climate change in their homes.  Members of Youth United for Community Action are making a difference not only through climate activism but also by establishing their center as a hub for climate resilience.  Learning how to grow vegetables in the back yard provides fresh produce for their families and neighbors, but also serves as a demonstration of how everyone can cultivate their own, too.
