Community Stories

The concept for the Clean Up Green Up initiative comes from the ground up, emerging in Los Angeles neighborhoods that suffer the health effects of local pollution.

Residents from three LA communities—Boyle Heights, Pacoima and Wilmington–  collaborated with academics and others to identify local pollution sources and explore the connections between their proximity and the health effects residents experience.

The community leaders you meet here came to understand the links between family health problems and concentrations of local pollution and decided to take steps to improve their local environment.

Take a look at their stories.
