Profile: Burgeoning Activist Eduardo Guevara

Aired on The California Report on Wednedsay, July 31, 2013.

The unincorporated community of Mecca, in Riverside County, struggles with a host of environmental problems, from arsenic in the well water to toxic dump sites. For years after moving to Mecca from Mexicali, Mexico, Eduardo Guevarra was not particularly worked up about it. But then his wife was hospitalized for asthma, twice.  Guevarra says his wife's suffering prompted him to get some answers.
