Join us on July 31 at 10AM at the groundbreaking ceremony for La Semilla Community Resiliency Center, a first-of-its-kind project marking a significant step forward for environmental justice at the border.  

The construction project will transform a vacant 7,000-square-foot lot in the heart of the San Ysidro Historic Village into a versatile multi-use center developed to serve residents during climate/emergency events. La Semilla will also provide programming and services year-round to teach residents tools to tackle air pollution, extreme heat, drought, energy use, and other climate/community risks. 

The new climate resiliency center is funded through a state grant. The California Strategic Growth Council approved this year more than $93 million in funding for climate resiliency centers throughout the state. Casa Familiar was awarded $8.4 million for the La Semilla project.
