The Central Valley has some of the worst air pollution in America

Faith in the Valley Receives $600K Grant to Fight for Environmental Justice in the Valley

Our organization, in partnership with Public Health Advocates, is pleased to receive a substantial Sierra Health Foundation Cluster grant to engage parents, community leaders and partners across five counties in the Valley to make change in three areas affecting children’s health:

  1. safe, healthy housing
  2. clean air and
  3. a healthy environment and safe spaces to exercise.

“I am excited for the opportunity to begin the work that will bring in required new voices for Health Equity and Racial Justice for children,” said Pastor Trena Turner, Executive Director of Faith In The Valley. “Raising awareness on the connection of poor air quality, disparity in housing, and lack of safe spaces to play will mobilize parents and community leaders—along with various partners—to engage in the required steps to organize and begin changing policy that results in healthy environments for our families.”
