ORGANIZATION: BREATHE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

Image_202404221312

Join BlueSky LA and Rootdown LA for an enriching day at a middle school in South LA! Together, we'll cultivate a healthier environment for all.

Why: Healthy soil is essential for all living life on earth. It provides the nutrients needed for all plants to grow, it helps absorb water and captures carbon dioxide. Part of the initial work in the development of green spaces in Los Angeles, especially those that involve growing food, involves improving the soils that have been affected by many changes due to land development and use. Root Down LA has shared with us the need to improve the soils at a South LA middle school with the goal of being able to produce more food for the surrounding community of South LA.

Who: Breathe SoCal's mission is Promoting Clean Air and Healthy Lungs through Research, Education and Technology.

What to Expect: Volunteers will clear out invasive species, will help us wheelbarrow in some new soil.

About BREATHE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

Location:

5858 WILSHIRE BLVD STE 300, LOS ANGELES, CA 90036, US

Mission Statement

Breathe Southern California (Breathe SoCal) is dedicated to promoting clean air and healthy lungs through research, education, advocacy and technology. Our vision is to protect the breath of life by eliminating the causes of lung disease in our communities. We provide communities in Southern California the resources needed to promote clean air initiatives. Breathe SoCal works with local communities, elected leaders, business leaders and the health education community to increase awareness of the causes and treatments for lung-related diseases and breathing-related conditions.

Description

Breathe SoCal's programs educate and promote healthy lungs and better breathing. On a multi-cultural, multi-disciplined basis, we are working to help improve the lives of those with lung disease and breathing-related conditions. We are working with organizations to combat asthma and are partners in the battle for smoke-free environments and for overall cleaner air. We do this through specific programs and initiatives tailored to individual communities as well as various ages and cultural backgrounds.

First formed in 1903 as the Los Angeles Society for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis, the organization served the city's growing population of more than 300,000. For more than 100 years, the organization committed itself to increasing public awareness about the tuberculosis epidemic and other lung-related diseases-- including asthma, bronchitis and emphysema-- and working towards eradication.
