Bay Localize inspires and supports Bay Area residents in building equitable, resilient communities. The organization confronts the challenges of climate instability, rising energy costs and recession by boosting the Bay Area region’s capacity to provide for everyone’s needs, sustainably and equitably. It is Communications and Outreach Manager Corrine L. Van Hook’s mission to help spread the organization’s message.
“The impacts of climate change are real,” Van Hook says. “We are a fossil fuel-dependent economy, and it needs to get better. It’s really starting to affect communities.”
