Remarks by the Pro Bono Champions at the Voices of Conscience Celebration.
With the battle for social justice raging across the country, it’s gratifying to celebrate those whose work has significantly moved communities forward. Envision-Transform-Build East Palo Alto has long fought gentrification and recently won $20 million for affordable housing in East Palo Alto. What started as a grassroots coalition of neighbors, has become a recognized leader and symbol of how organized communities can meet corporate giants like Facebook on a level playing field. We were delighted to honor Envision-Transform-Build EPA as a 2017 Voices of Conscience Awardee!
