Building Healthy Communities from the Ground up

Statewide rally for Healthy Hoods a huge success

On Monday April 14th, CEJA, CBE, CCAEJ and allies rallied in front of Exide Technologies to demand tighter regulations on chronic corporate polluters across California! Local community leader Father John Moretta of the Resurrection Church, Huntington Park City Councilmember Karina Macias, our very own Penny Newman, a representative from Senator Lara’s office, and Roberto Cabrales held it down on the mike while community leaders chanted. And, the best part: youth-led street theater featuring “El Barrio vs Chronic Corporate Polluters!”

To top it off, we got some great media coverage. Here are some of the best pieces:
