Carolina Prado is an Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies at San José State University. She has worked at the intersection of community based research, environmental justice, and border studies for the last ten years. As a first generation queer Chicana, she believes that her struggles for social and environmental justice should create an impact on both sides of the border. Her current work is analyzing the impacts of water pollution on health and mobility for residents in Tijuana, México in collaboration with the Colectivo Salud y Justicia Ambiental. She is also passionate about food justice and anti-domestic violence work.
