“When I read that 70% of the airborne cancer risk in the state of California comes from diesel pollution, the first image that comes to mind is my memory of my aunt who passed from lung cancer. I find her story in those numbers and this inspires me to continue working with communities affected by diesel pollution in the Bay Area. In my work with the Diesel Collaborative I look for ways to remind those with the power to reduce this pollution that each of those numbers is a human life.”
