You can make a difference!
We are committed to maintaining an inclusive, diverse organization in which we prioritize elevating people representative of the majority population to up-front leadership roles.
Our work centers on the majority population of the Pajaro Valley - low income farmworker families predominantly of Mexican and Indigenous heritage, who speak Spanish, English, and/or several Indigenous languages.

Ongoing Volunteer Committees
The all-volunteer Board maintains a minimum of two-thirds Black, Indigenous or People of Color and two-thirds living or working in the Pajaro Valley. (Meets bi-monthly, with other committee meetings and consultations arranged separately).
Our Frontline Allies Affinity Group is made up of white or white-identifying people who meet monthly to interrupt and eliminate racism from our individual minds and end white domination in participants’ affiliated organizations, our work with Regeneracion, and the general community. Members commit to giving monthly or annually to Regeneración. (Meets monthly)
The Advocacy Committee is made up of local volunteers that work to advocate for social, climate, and environmental justice in the Pajaro Valley. Committee members learn about local issues and advocate for equitable solutions by speaking at Watsonville City Council meetings, creating educational infographics, and hosting public learning sessions. We cover a wide range of topics like affordable housing, city spending, and indigenous land protection. (Meets weekly or bi-weekly.)
YOUNG ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE ACTIVISTS
The monthly Young Environmental Justice Activists meetings are a safe space where young people- typically ages 30 and under- can come together and share any thoughts, feelings and experiences related to climate change and activism. There is no need to prepare anything beforehand. The goal is to provide a platform for like-minded activists to support each other and build community. ( Meets the second Monday of each month)
