THERMAL, Calif. — On February 23, 2013, approximately 200 empowered and concerned residents gathered to gain more awareness and continue taking on the environmental issues affecting the communities of the Eastern Coachella Valley.

According to Eduardo Guevara, associate director of Promotores Comunitarios del Desierto and an event organizer, “The [Inaugural Environmental Leadership Summit] is not only about the Salton Sea, it is also about residents closing the breach with the government agencies, so in the near future, they can be part of not only the discussion but the decision-making process.”
