Lupita Gonzalez, Angel Garcia, Coaltion Advocating for Pesticide Safety – Healthy Schools Campaign

Date grant awarded: November 22, 2018

Healthy Schools Campaign is a hyper-local initiative led by Coalition Advocatiing for Pesticide Safety (CAPS), a Tulare County-based grassroots coalition. CAPS hope to continue the momentum from the recent victory where they successfully got the biggest school district in their county to replace glyphosate-containing products with non-toxic alternatives, thus creating a safer environment for schoolchildren, particularly those in rural parts of the district.

At CAPS, they strive to inspire and engage with the following message: To create positive change, we start with validating our lived experiences.
