  • More Information about emPOWER:
    Since 2019, LRT has partnered with the Liberty Hill Foundation in extending its work to the San Gabriel/ Pomona Valley and the Inland Empire through the emPOWER program. This helps promote and advocate for energy efficiency, financial assistance, and clean energy alternatives to communities of color. Environmental racism continues to be prevalent in our communities, but several steps are being taken to advocate for better air quality, accessible utilities and clean energy. emPOWER advocates for individuals in danger of having their utilities shut off and has helped them apply for relief.
