Our Goal, Vision & Commitment
Community Tour - Bloomington, California
Members of CCAEJ were joined by Supervisor Rowe and her staff to speak with Bloomington residents and to tour the location/surrounding area of the proposed Bloomington Specific Park Plan. A MASSIVE 213 ACRE PROJECT that will be replacing homes, displacing community, and contributing to the increase of destructive pollutants and dangerous traffic. The development of industry is insidiously targeting frontline communities and directly impacting the well-being of Bloomington’s children, families, and environment. We’ll share updates as the process continues. We’d also like to thank Supervisor Rowe and her staff for taking the time to listen to the concerns of community members. Filmed & Edited by Daniel Reyes

We’re asking the community to show up and voice their opposition and concerns against this egregious project. Filmed & Edited by Daniel Reyes
Adelanto Toxic Tour: Episode 1
Today marks 10 years since the GEO group entered a contract with the city of Adelanto to incarcerate immigrants on behalf of ICE. GEO’s for profit facilities are a threat to the lives of immigrants and the local community in Adelanto. Immigrants detained in Adelanto have been subject to abuse and mistreatment. Last year, GEO group used a pesticide called HDQ in their failed attempt to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. This resulted in people detained to have health impacts such as headaches, dizziness, and fatigue but also respiratory illnesses, bloody noses, gastrointestinal tract problems, and worsening mental health. This was on top of already horrific conditions including lack of medical care, and food and water contamination. This further proves why we need city officials to prioritize wellbeing with their community, not their relationship with the GEO group! Text Adelanto to 797979. The Adelanto Toxic Tour is a collaborative project between the Inland Coalition for Immigrant Justice and the Center for Community Action and Environmental Justice.
