We’re excited to share with you our 2021 Year in Review, which dives deep into PSR-LA’s campaigns, achievements, and strategic goals for the coming year.
We go program by program to walk you through the various ways we’ve been able to connect with frontline community members, supporting their urgent calls for equitable public health and a clean environment.
If you’re a PSR-LA member, check your mailbox for a print copy.
This year, PSR-LA secured a multitude of environmental justice and public health wins under our belt. Support from our health care professional members and partnerships with our Los Angeles and California environmental justice allies allowed us to accomplish:
- A momentous state-wide draft rule banning the permitting of oil and gas wells within 3,200 feet of homes, schools, hospitals and detention centers,
- The official selection of South LA for an AB617 Community Emissions Reduction Plan and a Community Air Monitoring Plan by the California Air Resources Board,
- A temporary ban on water shut-offs in California during the COVID-19 crisis,
- Innovative leadership in Back from the Brink, a national grassroots campaign to fundamentally change U.S. nuclear weapons policy through local organizing and advocacy,
- A feature in the award-winning documentary film In the Dark of the Valley, which explored the nuclear and chemical contamination at the Santa Susana Field Laboratory and and its impact on local families and aired nationwide Nov. 14 on MSNBC,
- and much more.
