Featured Presenter – Gilda Gonzales

As Chief Executive Officer of the Unity Council, Gilda Gonzales knows a thing or two about public service. The Unity Council’s primary focus is to build wealth and assets for low-income individuals and families by implementing and managing programs addressing economic, social, and neighborhood development.

Their most successful project, still in Phase 1, is the Fruitvale Transit Village. With Fruitvale, Gilda and the Unity Council have revitalized a decaying neighborhood, kept people within walking distance of thier regional transportation and fostered a thriving business environment – all the while keeping the environmental impact minimal.

    This is the best kind of project. The final product evolved as an outcome of committed citizens taking action, speaking up, and empowering themselves. Thanks for posting.
