The unveiling of the Air Monitor Locations took place this Friday at the community workshop, in San Ysidro, where many authorities gathered to officially launch the project.
Purpose The purpose of the steering committee is to listen to concerns that residents have about air quality in San Ysidro and surrounding areas, and to get advice from residents on the best locations to place a network of low-cost air monitors. After we get comments from the participants in this study and our technical advisory group, we will put air monitors around the city of San Ysidro, CA and nearby locations. Monitoring will take place from July 2016 to July 2017.

For the past 35 years, she’s worked toward that as president and CEO of Casa Familiar, a nonprofit community development organization that offers various services to people in the community, from educational programs to affordable housing to art and culture.
