Robert Garcia | KCET
Robert Garcia is at the forefront of an environmental justice movement concerned with Los Angeles' legal and physical deficiencies when it comes to access to green space. The City Project, which he founded, works to hold city and state officials accountable for the mismanagement of natural resources, and also creates strategic campaigns to shape a public policy geared towards serving communities of color. A civil rights advocate for the 21st century, Garcia understands the role that public space plays in shaping both our histories and our experience of the urban. Departures sat down with Robert Garcia on the east bank of the Los Feliz narrows to talk to him about the current status of public lands along the river, possible ways to use them in the future, and the fact that many of Los Angeles' most underrepresented communities lie along the river.
