My Day with Majora Carter

Hi everyone,
Earlier this week, I had the fortune to meet Majora Carter, President of the Majora Carter group. Majora is an advocate for environmental justice whose work has focused specifically on the Bronx, where she grew up. Over the past two decades, she’s managed to secure millions to make polluted, urban spaces greener, safer places to play and live. A Coro alumnus, Majora is a testament to the effectiveness of the foundation’s Leadership New York XI program. As an Earth Day board member, I was especially honored to meet Majora. If you have a chance to see her or hear her speak, take it. She’s amazing.
