  • “Community gardens and green spaces where collaboration and education can occur, but so an applied-science situation can occur: Like a park ranger or senior citizen educating in the space. Creating an environment that’s not just for young people to learn but for the community to learn. Then, creating technology for those spaces: like cell towers that look like trees to not disrupt the environment and green buildings, integrated technology, share the products of the community gardens for a sustainable environment and create a barter system. Hold educational talks at farmers’ markets by farmers or chefs or artists, etc. “
  • equality and justice and opportunities for Latino people in the US, against racism. The only way to transform the mentality is education and providing services of all types to people in need. Advocates for social justice, education, and health services for vulnerable minorities in general.
