How This Community Fought for $70 Million in Cleanup Funds — and Won

Fresno sits in right in the middle of the Central Valley of California. The region is known for its vast agriculture and farming communities, but to locals, it's also known for its horrid air quality. This is especially true in the southwest territory of Fresno, where some of the most economically disadvantaged also reside. After a series of failed attempts by local government, the community took matters into their own hands, joining forces and fighting for the right to design their own plan for better air quality.
