Hello! I am LaTisha Harris, the new Community Outreach Specialist that has joined the Center for Climate Protection team. I will be working in the Central Valley primarily focused on Fresno and surrounding areas. I have over ten years of grassroots and labor organizing experience, lobbying and executing campaigns on various issues throughout the state of California. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Social Work from California State University, Fresno (Go Bulldogs!).
Being a native of Fresno with three children, all of whom suffer from asthma, having a cleaner environment has become one of my top priorities. Not just for my children, but for the generations to come as well. With the Central Valley being the top leader in Agriculture- supplying food for this entire nation, this is just one of the many reasons that Fresno needs and deserves a Community Choice Agency.
It is my desire to educate, engage and empower the residents, policy makers and stakeholders to make Fresno a cleaner and environmentally-friendly community, to stimulate the local economy by creating more jobs, and to give the residents an option in energy – something they’ve never had before. These are all things Community Choice Energy offers. I realize that this is a change that Fresno needs. It won’t be an easy road, but I am committed to making Fresno a better place to live, work and play!
