The West East Community Access Network (WE CAN) Foundation is a nonprofit based in Los Angeles, California. WE CAN was founded over 20 years ago with the objective of bridging the digital divide in underrepresented communities in South Central Los Angeles. Recently, WE CAN began tackling issues of sustainability in that community by educating residents about the benefits of urban agriculture and drought-tolerant landscaping.
WE CAN approached GISCorps to learn more about the potential for using GIS to track and promote their sustainability initiatives. Alice Kim and John Schweisinger were selected to perform an on-site needs assessment to evaluate WE CAN’s requirements and suggest an affordable and useful solution. Alice and John will be meeting with WE CAN volunteers shortly to begin their assessment.
