Carla Garcia Zendejas


Attorney

Mexican attorney Carla Garcia Zendejas worked with grassroots organizations in Tijuana to draft the Municipal Environmental Code -- a new law that gives citizens the right to know the content of factory emissions and the right to enforce this law.

In addition, the Toxic Pollutant Release Registry was created and a recent federal amendment requires companies to comply with the Registry.
