Updated: Apr 13

Wednesday, March 15, 2023, students from Urban Promise Academy attended a Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) board meeting. They were the only youth present there, and all of them did amazing!

See videos of UPA Student Testimonies:

Dana, an 8th grader at UPA said “Gas appliances produce a toxic gas called Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) These gasses can be highly toxic. I have a family member who is highly in danger because of health problems that are already affecting him. He’s only a year old.”

Thanks to everyone’s efforts, the law was passed!
