About the event
Houston air quality is one of the worst in the nation. Learn about advances and challenges to improving air quality in Houston at our March meeting.
Our speaker Leticia Gutierrez keeps abreast of policy developments and oversees engagement with elected officials as a Community Advocate for Clean Air and Environmental Justice. She was born in Mexico and came to Houston as a child, eventually graduating from Milby High School and the University of St. Thomas. Prior to her environmental justice work, she served as the Chief of Staff at the Houston City Council. Her passion for safe air for all started as she raised her children in the East End of Houston, where she noticed the poor air quality, and that one of her children experienced asthma when living there. When Leticia isn’t working, she is likely out volunteering in the community or spending time with her family.
