Archives: Seasons 1-5

February 24, 2012

In this edition, we focus on communities in Southern California trying to better themselves and the health of their residents. First up, correspondent Vince Gonzales goes to the Los Angeles neighborhood of Boyle Heights to see what people are doing to curb the great amount of pollution caused by nearby factories, freeways and railroads. More than an environmental issue, residents and researchers see it as a matter of environmental justice.

Next, Angie Crouch looks at the lack of green space in Los Angeles, one of the most park poor cities in the country.

Finally, as part of our ongoing series on elder care, Your Turn to Care, we highlight a group of volunteers that are part of the "village" movement and discover how they are assisting senior citizens.
