(Local Environmental Action Plan)
44% of UC students and 38% of SBCC students face food insecurity. Bruce will establish a food bank and mobile farmer's markets in Isla Vista to provide regular access for all residents.

Isla Vista’s cliffs lose an average of six to fourteen inches of ground per year. Hundreds of students are at risk of losing their homes or belongings to crumbling cliffs.

Isla Vista is facing a mental health and wellness crisis, particularly among college-aged individuals that are reporting increasing levels of mental health issues every year.
