Frontline communities of California experience disproportionate social, economic, and environmental injustices, and climate change is exacerbating the root causes of inequity in those areas. Yet, climate adaptation and mitigation strategies often fail to meaningfully address the experience of frontline community stakeholders.
SEEN has been awarded with a small grant to install water filtration systems in a few households to reduce their reliance in expensive bottled water that affects their income availability and contributes to pollution. The grant, awarded by the Union of Concerned Scientists, will allow us to install about 10 filtration systems to prevent such toxic chemicals as nitrate, uranium, and arsenic.
