Last week, in a post titled "Inside the Newsroom: Listening to the unincorporated," I wrote about a recent trip to Fresno.
California Watch reporter Bernice Yeung and I journeyed there to join California Rural Legal Assistance, a nonprofit legal services program, and a few dozen community members to talk about Yeung's April report “Neglected for decades, unincorporated communities lack basic public services,” which detailed the hardships faced by some 1.8 million Californians who live in unincorporated neighborhoods.
The event was a huge success, and I encourage you to read the post I put together.
But there was definitely something missing from that article: photos.
So, today, I'm happy to share a small series of photos courtesy of PolicyLink, an Oakland-based public policy research and advocacy institute that also participated.
All photos were taken by Hector Gutierrez.
