On Thursday, March 3, 2022, CCEJ hosted its first-ever hybrid Interfaith Intercultural Breakfast! 150 people gathered in person at Rancho Los Cerritos and 100 people joined us online to hear keynote speaker Josiah Edwards share about how his lived experience informs and shapes his work as an environmental justice organizer and climate change activist.

Thank you to everyone who supported this beloved event, including our amazing group of Board members, staff and volunteers who helped make this event possible. We are also truly grateful to our wonderful sponsors listed below:
