The City of Stockton subcontracted with Public Health Advocates to lead the community engagement components of the Transformative Climate Communities (TCC), Stockton Rising grant. Stockton Rising is a project in Stockton, CA that focuses on reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, improving public health and environmental benefits, expanding economic opportunity, and shared prosperity in disadvantaged communities. Our role is to connect with residents from the project area and engage them in implementing change.

Climate Leaders are someone that is organized, responsible, well known, and a trusted community member who is willing to learn and facilitate learning spaces for their neighborhood.
