I have been working with the Clean Air Coalition in the Imperial Valley for close to a year now. Our main goal is to draw attention to the air quality in the Imperial Valley and ways in which we can become a part of creating everyday solutions to make the air cleaner. As a member of the faith community I have found the words of Jesus when he says, “Love your neighbor as yourself” as motivation enough to try and make our planet a more enjoyable place to live in. Our current project is tree planting in the City of Heber. This is where all of you come into the story. You can’t not help make the air cleaning in our city. If you live in the Imperial Valley then this means cleaner air for you. If you don’t live in the Valley, then you can enter into solidarity with us by donating a tree or a few dollars. One people, one planet, one purpose.
