Coachella Youth and Environmental Justice

Aired on The California Report Magazine July 12, 2013:

and on NPR's Latino USA December 6th, 2013:

It’s not every day that a group of high school students chooses to drive around with a college professor taking pictures of sewage failure. But that’s what Uriel Gutierrez and three of his friends were doing on the day I visited them this spring. They’re showing professor Ryan Sinclair of Loma Linda University around mobile home parks that are prevalent in the Eastern Coachella Valley where they live, and they’re documenting problems to try to help their community.
