Speaker: Oscar Grande, Community Organizer for PODER
This week‘s gathering will feature a presentation by Oscar Grande, community organizer for PODER: People Organizing to Demand Environmental and Economic Rights.
PODER is a grassroots, environmental justice organization whose mission is to organize with Mission District residents to work on local solutions to issues facing low income communities and communities of color. PODER engages in organizing for environmental and economic justice through its The People’s Plan for Jobs, Housing & Community and Immigrant Power for Environmental Health & Justice projects, and building youth power with its project, The Common Roots, a program that develops Latino and Chinese immigrant youth organizers—only some of its many justice campaigns.
Join us this Thursday at Valencia Gardens for a dynamic discussion with PODER!
