A virtual benefit that honors the bold leaders in local government working to ensure greater climate resilience for the Bay Area.
Join us for the second edition of our virtual annual benefit, Hidden Heroes of the Greenbelt, on Thursday, September 29, from 12 – 1 p.m. (Pacific Time).
Hosted by Franco Finn, media personality, auctioneer, and emcee hype man, this year’s celebration will feature short films that tell the stories of three extraordinary heroes—Christine Reed, Erin Morris, and Hoi-Fei Mok—whose contributions to climate and land-use policies are making a positive impact in the region.
