Starlyn interned at PANNA in the summer of 2010. During her time here, she worked on an environmental justice report examining the racial and socio-economic implications of using methyl iodide as a soil fumigant in California. Upon examining the areas of use in the state of California, a disturbing pattern became evident: the heaviest usage of methyl iodide would be concentrated in areas with heavier percentages of minorities. Starlyn also contributed to the development of an organic foods pledge for local stores and merchants.
Today, Starlyn is working towards her Masters in Natural Resources and plans to continue working towards all forms of environmental equity.
