Youth Organizers Ashley Hernandez and Jan Andasan – EcoJustice Radio


Ashley Hernandez from Communities for a Better Environment (Wilmington), Jan Victor Andasan from East Yard Communities for Environmental Justice (West Long Beach/Carson), join JP Morris of EcoJustice Radio to discuss youth organizing in under-resource communities, reflecting on the Los Angeles People’s Climate March that happened in April 2017. Their communities face two major ports, five oil refineries and massive drilling sacrifice zones, major freeways, railyards, and all the contamination, noise, and environmental injustice.
