About the Air District

Rio Molina

Rio Molina

Being from a farmworker family, Rio strives for health equity. He was born and raised in Sonoma County, which has one of the highest pediatric cancer rates in the state. His hometown, Graton, is surrounded in all directions by chemically intensive, industrial agriculture.

Since June 2021, Rio has worked performing inspections of temporary agricultural worker housing for the state workforce agency, EDD. Beyond this role, he is an incoming MPH student at UC Berkeley, where he intends to study the health impacts of disasters exacerbated by climate change. Rio is eager to collaborate and build solidarity with other regional representatives.
