Embajadora de la Comunidad | Community Ambassador

Ana is leading outreach and engagement with frontline communities in the South County region of Santa Barbara for Conectados 2050/Connected 2050, a project CEC is helping implement for the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments. Ana was raised in Santa Barbara’s Eastside neighborhood, where she experienced many traffic dangers as a pedestrian, including when she walked her three kids to school every day. She is committed to facilitating truly sustainable solutions to climate change that are developed hand-in-hand with our region’s most impacted frontline communities.
