Region: North Coast

Project(s): California State Water Resources Control Board Email: mjimenez1@civicspark.lgc.org Fellow Bio:

I am a Sacramento native with family roots in Hidalgo, Mexico who recently graduated from UC Berkeley with degrees in Latin American Studies and Society & Environment. I am interested in strengthening historically underserved communities through ensuring clean and safe environments. For me this means my interests center around environmental justice since it is a framework that recognizes the contributions and struggles of people from different backgrounds. With CivicSpark I am excited to grow my understanding of state government functions while bridging this with community needs.
