We are proud that President Barack Obama has invited The City Project to the celebration of parks, monuments, and recreation areas as social justice issues at Yosemite National Park this weekend.
Cesar de la Vega, who is representing us, is a hometown boy from East Los, UCLA, and Stanford Law School, and the Juanita Tate Social Justice Fellow at The City Project. Cesar visited Yosemite for the first time last month when he spoke at the San Joaquin Valley Parks Summit. This drives home the need for the National Park Service to diversify access to and support for parks, monuments, and recreation areas as it begins its second century.
You are invited to attend a White House National Park Service Centennial Celebration this Saturday, June 18, 2016, in Yosemite National Park. President Obama will give remarks about the importance of our National Parks and why it is so important we protect these amazing places for future generations.
