America Ferrera has won a Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and an Emmy Award. She has appeared on Time magazine’s list of 100 most influential people. She has been honored in Congress as an outstanding role model for young Latinas. And now she has visited Waukegan to help shine additional light on real people affected by climate change.
Ferrera, a project correspondent with the Emmy Award-winning television documentary series “Years of Living Dangerously,” met with members of the Clean Power Lake County Campaign last week to learn what we are doing to create a healthier, more livable community.
Ferrera also interviewed Mayor Wayne Motley and spoke to students at Abbott Middle School.
Ferrera’s Waukegan experiences will be part of an episode for the series’ second season.
Season 2 of “Years of Living Dangerously” will air on the National Geographic Channel this fall.
We’re excited to share the story of our campaign with a national audience—and will provide updates as the episode’s release date approaches.
