Adriana Fernandez Arriaga is uplifting and amplifying the voices of our Spanish speaking and immigrant community. “Climate change and the housing crisis hit my community hard, yet we are left out of the brainstorming and decision making meetings.” Not one to shy away from a challenge, Adriana is shifting that paradigm through authentic community engagement. She organizes and empowers the community residents of East Palo Alto, eastern Menlo Park, North Fair Oaks and Redwood City to take ownership of their advocacy abilities and ensure the inclusion of low income and immigrant communities in key discussions and policies. She works closely with our partners to build strong, lasting and mutual support to develop healthy and sustainable communities.
Ariel Schindewolf
01:25:07
Gracias, Dra. Carrera!!! Is anyone aware of materials in Spanish that might be accessible to intermediate Spanish learners on the topic of Environmental justice?
Neha Jain Patkar (she/her)
01:25:13
Adriana is an alumni of the Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley Latino Board Leadership Academy and serves on the Executive Board of the San Mateo County Parks Foundation where she ensures underrepresented, low-income communities have access to and feel safe in our parks so we can all enjoy and care for our parks. She was chosen to be part of the Green Foothill’s Community Advocates Leadership Academy where she is working to amplify the non-traditional sustainability practices of our Latino and immigrant communities of San Mateo County and is an active volunteer with Dreamers Roadmap Supplies for Farmworkers Campaign. Adriana attended Canada College and transferred to the University of California, Davis where she graduated with a B.S. in Environmental Science and Management. Connect with Adriana on LinkedIn.

Karen is a Quechua Bolivian who grew up on the unceded ancestral homeland of the Ramaytush Ohlone, who are the original inhabitants of the San Francisco Peninsula. She is self-decolonizing; she is restoring her ancestral remembrance of traditional knowledge, foodways, cultural practices, and language to embrace her sovereignty and pass down this ancestral knowledge to those who will come after her.
Neha Jain Patkar (she/her)
01:26:03
While studying in her ancestral homelands, Karen produced a research documentary film project focused on Bolivian perspectives on environmental conservation and food accessibility. Since then, she has worked with several non-profits on environmental justice education curriculum design, community organizing, social media coordination, and website management. Since January 2021, she has consulted for Nuestra Casa where she designed the EJ Parent Academy curriculum in collaboration with Nuestra Casa's staff members and partners. Along with curriculum design, she supported the Youth Cohort of the EJ Academy and mentored youth who were interested in applying their empowered advocacy skills towards Nuestra Casa's Environmental Justice programming.
Neha Jain Patkar (she/her)
01:26:14
Karen received her B.A. degree from the University of San Francisco in 2020, where she majored in International Studies and double minored in Latin American and Urban Agriculture studies. She is an incoming Ph.D. student at the Department of Environmental Studies at UC Santa Cruz. Her research will focus on the socio-economic and political impacts of the commodification of native crops upon Indigenous farmers from our global food system, and the movements taking place towards decolonial food sovereignty and transnational Indigenous sovereignty.

Josiah Josef Keoni Quon Rodriguez, or Keoni as most call him, is the firstborn son of John Carlo Ube Rodriguez from Antipolo City, Philippines and Laryna Beatrice Kam On Palama from Kaimuki, O’ahu. He belongs to the Ube and Rodriguez families of the Rizal Province in the Philippines and the Palama and Kainoa families of Hawai’i, Kaua’i, and Maui. He was born and raised on occupied Kumeyaay land (San Diego, CA) and currently resides on occupied Ohlone land. Keoni is deeply committed to the empowerment and liberation of the Hawaiian and Filipino communities, both at home and in the diaspora.
Neha Jain Patkar (she/her)
01:43:29
As a student activist, community organizer, and storyteller, Keoni is deeply invested in the concept of education as a vehicle for the empowerment of marginalized communities. Growing up, he quickly became aware of his identity as both a Filipino and a Hawaiian and desired to fill in the holes where the Western curriculum had failed to speak to his own histories. Today, his mission is to create ways to make education more accessible for his communities, and to help the next generation decolonize the classroom through community empowerment.
Neha Jain Patkar (she/her)
01:43:40
Neha Patkar is a junior at Stanford University studying Human Biology with a concentration in Environment, Health, and Policy and minoring in Spanish. She is passionate about education in both health and environmental spaces and hopes to pursue this passion in the future. At Stanford, Neha engages in this work through the group Students for a Sustainable Stanford, focusing on education surrounding environmental justice and sustainability.

Congrats, I suspect that many other community-based groups (some a bit more focused on food justice), including several that we work with in San Jose, CA would be interested in learning more about this approach….

Question for Pedlow: How are these students projects funded ?
Bryan Avery
02:01:31
For Julie Sze: If self-reflection and realization is core to transforming the actions of individual; how to we help those resistant to self-reflection? Either they distrust your point of view as a "liberal elite" and the data we present as "fuzzy math, totally fake news". We can't just ignore people who aren't part of this current conversation, they still have power and often times they are fighting against this work.

A question for all presenters: Many of the programs and curricular ideas we have heard about in these presentations sound like they may stem from partcipatory action research models. Which models influence your program design, curriculum, or research?

In reference to the earlier K-5 question, Learning in Places also utilizes a storyline framework approach. It’s science education in outdoor contexts for K-3. Family supports, etc. There’s certainly intersections in their curriculum that can offer entry points to EJ. http://learninginplaces.org

So is it fair to say that all the examples given today were academic-institutional funded or supported partnerships? Is this the same for the last presenter team?
Bryan Matsumoto, Nature for All (he, him)

🌳🚌🚶🏽‍♀️ Getting participants OUTDOORS is critical to see and compare real places to understand EJ... At Nature for All (@lanatureforall) in Los Angeles County, we teach Community Leadership Development courses and have a Leadership Academy focusing on EJ, park equity, public lands protection, outdoor access, water resilience & civic advocacy.The TOURS are compelling to connect the dots. From mountains to local green infrastructure parks to see what some communities have and what yours can advocate to have. Kudos to all the great work everyone. 👏🏽

Sometimes it helps not to assume that students are oppositional, or think of them that way. Assuming that students who disagree with me have the same basic values of wanting to make a better world has gone a long way, and I’ve seen hardcore conservatives engage very respectfully with racial justice issues.

I took a nonprofit marketing course, and the instructor said to "speak to your believers" and spend some time with your "agnostics," but don't waste your precious time on your "atheists." You probably have enough believers that could use your empowerment, resources, teaching, and organizing

But hasn't this fracture/schizm in our society lead to the incredible time lag in dealing with global issues like climate change? Furthermore, won't these divisions slow important progress? If we just teach to those on board, and the other side does the same, how do we ever solve issues that need both sides at the table?

@Adriana @Karen what are the major differences between working with parents v youth? Do y’all bring both groups together for certain projects at any point ?

I work with other groups such as Latino Outdoors and also https://www.communitynatureconnection.org/ for developing and learning how to do better in outdoor education with a strong culture, familia and EJ connections.
