Taller de comentarios públicos de Veolia, Jueves, 18 de enero, 6-7:30pm en Zoom

(Full Event Details) In December, the Veolia Water plant, Richmond’s current water/sewage provider, released toxins into the air. While this isn’t the first time this has happened, this incident led to an emergency city council meeting. On Tuesday, January 30rd, the city will have a follow up council meeting to address Veolia polluting the local environment. We are calling on YOU to show up and hold them accountable for their negligence and harm.

If you would like to learn more about Veolia and its historic tactic of targeting low-income communities, CBE Richmond will be offering a workshop to support community in writing a public comment, January 18th at 6 pm on Zoom. Join us and make your voice heard!

En diciembre, la planta de agua de Veolia, el actual proveedor de agua y alcantarillado de Richmond, liberó toxinas al aire. Si bien esta no es la primera vez que esto sucede, este incidente dio lugar a una reunión de emergencia del ayuntamiento. El martes 30 de enero, la ciudad tendrá una reunión del consejo de seguimiento para abordar la contaminación del medio ambiente local por parte de Veolia. Le pedimos a USTED que se presente y los haga responsables de su negligencia y daño.

Si desea obtener más información sobre Veolia y su táctica histórica de apuntar a comunidades de bajos ingresos, CBE Richmond ofrecerá un taller para apoyar a la comunidad a escribir un comentario público, el 18 de enero a las 6 p.m. en Zoom. ¡Únete a nosotros y haz oír tu voz!

Wilmington Resident/ EJ Supporters Action Alert-Show up & speak out at the Warren oil drilling hearing! January 19, 2023 @ 10am

(Full Event Details) CALL INTO THE ZONING ADMINISTRATOR HEARING!

We call on the Los Angeles Zoning Administrator (Z.A.), and the city of Los Angeles to prioritize community health and safety by enforcing the law against Warren Resources, one of Wilmington’s biggest polluters. Warren Resources, an oil company operating in the Wilmington Neighborhood of Los Angeles, operates hundreds of wells near community and adjacent to a little league baseball field. Warren was issued an Order to Comply in 2022 for conducting unpermitted oil drilling operations in violation of the Municipal Code, because it lacked City approval.

They misrepresented information in their oil drilling applications to CALGEM (State agency) in violation of LA Municipal Code… to keep their profits growing while their neighbors’ health continued to bare the impacts of their selfish decisions.

WARREN RESOURCES YOU ARE A FRAUD!

Support by calling into the Zoning Administrator hearing tomorrow at 10am to provide public comment after the presentations. ZOOM LINK https://planning-lacity-org.zoom.us/j/84699393620

Or call in: 669-900-9128 Meeting ID: 846 9939 3920 Passcode: 542056

Tell the Z.A. you oppose Warren’s appeal of their order to comply, their disregard of city law and indifference to polluting the community, and urge them to prioritize the health and safety of their constituents. They do not have the right to drill indefinitely.
