Growing up with asthma, I didn’t understand that my experience was connected to air quality and environmental justice. As a mother, I believe that the 46th ward can and must become a place where children thrive not just today but for generations to come. With rising temperatures and increasingly extreme weather events due to climate change, we need to change the status quo to ensure a healthy world for our children to live in. I will work to address past harms from environmental racism, reduce emissions so that the city reaches its goals of being carbon neutral, and prevent future harm to our air, water, and soil. We have an opportunity to do this while investing in our communities by creating green jobs programs retrofitting and government buildings.
