    Drinking Water Safety in South-central LA

    We will test the drinking water in 5,000 homes in areas of South Central Los Angeles with aging infrastructure for toxins that can result in cognitive issues and other negative health outcomes. The tests will measure the water quality coming out of the kitchen tap in each home, and upload the results to a central database for analysis and reporting. Residents will be provided with the results, their level of risk, and those with a high risk will be connected to community organizations that can provide their families with clean drinking water.

    501CTHREE Food and Water Box

    We fill a gap not served in the market as a multi-dimensional media, climate technology deployment and job skills program. The deployment of the 501CTHREE Food and Water Box provides resources to the LA community and in turn empowers the community with workforce development skills. 501CTHREE utilizes storytelling around the tech deployment to amplify the scalable programs that other change-makers facing similar issues in struggling communities can learn from and apply. 501CTHREE is about environmental justice.
