Biografía

Nehanda Imara is an East Oakland, resident, dedicated activist, organizer, educator and adjunct teacher for African American and Environmental Studies at Merritt College. Nehanda created the first Environmental Racism/Justice course at the Peralta Community College District.

Nehanda was part of the leadership team at the inception of East Oakland Building Healthy Communities since 2010. Nehanda served on the interim steering committee and worked to shepherd in the implementation phase of the initiative.

Currently Nehanda chairs the Land Use/Built Environment Working Group and serves on the Leadership Council. Nehanda is an organizer with Communities for a Better Environment and in this capacity engages residents and youth in fighting for a “Just Transition” away from dirty pollution systems and for clean more sustainable environmental policies and programs.

She organized the first CBE ‘Love Yo Mama Earth Day’ in 2009 in collaboration with community partners in deep East Oakland, a community suffering deeply from the present global ecological crisis, bringing information and resources to youth and residents that typically lack access.
