Irma Muñoz is the founder and executive director of Mujeres de la Tierra, an environmental equity organization. MDLT inspires and teaches women and their children to take ownership and leadership of their neighborhood issues.

A lawyer turned social entrepreneur, Irma works with women in Los Angeles’ east side (and beyond) to find practical solutions to benefit families and their environment.

Her newest project, a MDLT partnership with The Center for Science and Democracy (CSD), is a pilot project that connects residents with local scientists and technical specialists to serve as informational resources for oil and gas development issues and concerns including fracking-related impacts in their areas.
