Full CBE Press Release here.

“As the City begins to implement this plan, we urge Mayor Garcetti and the City Council to prioritize environmental justice issues such as: putting in place a 2,500-foot health and safety buffer for new and existing oil drilling operations; mandating Valero refinery in Wilmington that uses extremely dangerous and deadly modified hydrofluoric acid in its refining process to switch to safer alternatives; and continuing to work with community-based organizations for aggressively reducing cumulative impacts of pollution in Clean Up-Green Up Communities such as Wilmington.”
