Youth present Eastern Coachella Projects at planning conference

Youth representatives from the Eastern Coachella Valley participated in a panel at the annual conference of the American Planning Association. The conference, titled “Legitimate Voices: Youth Perspectives on the Meaning of Building Healthy Communities in the Eastern Coachella Valley,” gave an opportunity for California planners to hear authentic voices of youth working in the Eastern Coachella Valley. “Some planners didn’t even know where the Eastern Coachella Valley was or what was going on in the Eastern Coachella Valley. Sometimes we assume people already know.” See more on Coachella Unincorporated.
