Antonio Marmolejo

Why have you chosen to serve on the CURE Board? 

Minnesota’s river basin is one of the most important environments in the United States and I believe it is our duty to dedicate ourselves to protect its future. I also chose to serve on the CURE board to be a part of those promoting CURE’s model of grassroots activism which allows for the creation of new leaders and the empowerment of communities.
