Vision: To inspire social change by dismantling the root causes of environmental injustice.
Through community base building and leadership development, we seek to change the political and social landscape of the Inland Valley which includes Riverside and San Bernardino counties.
The work of CCAEJ consistently focuses on those most affected by environmental health hazards: low-income communities of color and immigrant families who live, work, learn and play closest to rail yards, industrial areas, toxic waste facilities, intermodal facilities, freeways, and other areas at greatest risk for environmental health hazards.
Mission: The Center for Community Action and Environmental Justice (CCAEJ) is a progressive equity-based organization that embodies hope, unites people y pueblos, to create intersectional solutions that transform communities “to bring people together to improve their social and natural environment.” Utilizing the lens of environmental health, we achieve regenerative change by developing resilient BIPOC intergenerational leadership, through the power of community base-building. Through strategic campaigns, we cultivate inclusive self-sustaining neighborhoods, where everyone can live, work, play, and thrive.
