Copy of September Williams Author of Chasing Mercury at Civicorps Oakland


I became interested in Civi Corps through a National Writers Union brother Alan Lessik. At the time of the recent fires in Napa and Sonoma I wanted to make a donation to an organization which not only dealt with disasters of fire and floods but also worked to prevent them.

It seemed to me that Civi Corps helping to develop better educated young people who understand things like Climate Change, and who also do work in Recycling and Brush control , not as a school project but as professional trades people -- had a proactive approach to fire prevention and so environmental protection and  environmental justice while providing young people with jobs and education.  I was invited to speak at a community meeting at Civi Corps and I encourage my readers to donate to and support Civi Corps Oakland.
