Header image of a person squatting with a quote by Undergrad Health Equity Fellow Naomi Humphrey: "The argument is pretty simple, parks are essential. Parks can determine your health and well-being in the long-term... It's just about valuing people."

In KPCC’s latest episode of Take Two, National Health Foundation Undergraduate Health Equity Fellow, Naomi Humphrey was featured, discussing the importance of park access, particularly in under-resourced communities like South Los Angeles. In light of recent calls to defund the police and re-invest in Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) communities, Naomi makes the case for why city budgets should increase funding for parks, especially when considering how well-funded parks are in other affluent, white communities like Santa Monica.
