In 2018, I collaborated with program directors and youth eco-stewards at Literacy for Environmental Justice to script, film, and edit this 10 minute short film. This piece was meant to encapsulate and commemorate the organization’s 20 years of providing environmental stewardship, justice-centered activism, and eco-literacy for youth within San Francisco’s Bayview neighborhood.

In preparation, I attended weekly work days in LEJ’s native plant nursery for 2 years, Bayview Environmental Justice Task Force Meetings, as well as air quality monitoring work days. I developed interview scripts, conducted interviews, operated camera and audio gear, as well as edited the film.
