VOICES and VISIONS in the VALLEY

The Leadership Counsel for Justice and Accountability and California’s Transformative Climate Communities Program are bringing positive change to the Valley and our state.
See what God might be up to “outside the church.” How can we join in to make a difference?

VOICES—Ashley Werner is a Senior Attorney with Leadership Counsel for Justice and Accountability, www.leadershipcounsel.org, where she helps shape and drive the organization’s legal and policy initiatives to eliminate barriers to opportunity based on wealth, race, income and place in the San Joaquin and Coachella Valleys.

VISIONS—California’s new Transformative Climate Communities Program, investing Greenhouse Gas Reduction Funds in our state’s low-income and disadvantaged communities, seeks to reduce carbon emissions and poverty, and
improve health, equity, and participation.

For more information, here is a flyer, downloadable in PDF format.
