The Center for Community Action and Environmental Justice (CCAEJ) is a progressive, base-building, non-profit organization bringing communities together to find opportunities for cooperation, agreement and problem solving in improving their social and natural environment. Using the lens of environmental health to achieve social change, we work within communities to develop and sustain democratically based, participatory decision-making that promotes involvement of a diverse segment of the community in ways that empower the community.

R-NOW Community Meeting - Riverside, CA
Last week we joined the Riverside Neighbors Opposing Warehouses (R-NOW) meeting and listened to how community members felt about the proposed developments that would be surrounding their homes. Community members voiced their concerns regarding the influx of logistics infrastructure, destruction of natural spaces, and increase in dangerous traffic/pollution that would directly affect the community. We answered questions about public advocacy, assisted community members with drafting comments and broke down what they can expect when speaking publicly. We’ll be sharing details for the next meeting VERY soon! Instagram - @ccaej_ Twitter - @CCAEJ Facebook - Center for Community Action and Environmental Justice Filmed & Edited by Daniel R.
