What Motivates These Rising Climate Leaders to Fight For Their Communities

After reviewing more than 150 applications, we’ve selected 12 stellar applicants from the Central Valley and the Inland Empire for our third cohort.

So let’s get acquainted with our newest members of the EnviroVoters Ed Fund team, and keep scrolling for more info about how you can support the program!

Yolanda Aguilar Candelario, who leads the Ambassador program, will start us off with some education about the program's importance in achieving clean water and air in California's battleground regions:

Now, hear directly from each of the 12 rising climate leaders about their favorite artists, their star signs, and what motivates them to fight for environmental justice in their communities!

The program was a massive success last year — the Ambassadors hosted presentations for students and community organizations, held town halls with elected officials, spoke directly to government agencies and legislators, and recruited nearly 150 volunteers.

We’re even more ambitious for this year. But the only way we can keep up the momentum is with your support.

Could you invest in the future of the climate movement by donating to our impactful Ambassadors program? 

Thank you for supporting us!
