Change.org has produced a new video about pediatric cancers near the contaminated Santa Susana Field Laboratory – and the failure of the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) to uphold its commitments to clean up the site’s nuclear and chemical contamination.
Position Available: STAND-LA Coalition (Standing Together Against Neighborhood Drilling) Field Organizing Coordinator
STAND-LA (Standing Together Against Neighborhood Drilling) is seeking a full-time Field Organizing Coordinator to help advance our work to end neighborhood oil drilling in Los Angeles. We seek someone who can drive forward our coalition’s grassroots organizing and coalition-building work.
PSR-LA knows how to build and be part of effective and diverse coalitions that strengthen our movement for health and justice. But we need your help to allow us to leverage our unique position into the victories for a world safe from nuclear threats, with air and climate justice, and reduced exposure to health-harming toxic chemicals.
In 2017, PSR-LA joined a coalition of over 80 organizations to support Senate Bill 623 – the Clean and Affordable Drinking Water Fund bill authored by Senator Monning. The bill is a vital solution to our communities’ struggles with affordable and unsafe drinking water.
PSR-LA is proud to announce the launch of the 500 Feet interactive mapping tool! Using federal, state and local government data sources, PSR-LA has developed an interactive hazard-mapping tool that visualizes the proximity of hazardous and sensitive uses in South Central LA.
In an effort to start identifying the concrete interventions and solutions, PSR-LA is embarking on a project where we apply Just Transition strategies to our understanding of the metals industry in South and East LA. The Just Transition framework conceptualizes a roadmap from an extractive economy to a living economy.
