Environmental Justice Air Quality Coalition

EJAQC exists to demand and achieve air quality policies and practices consistent with the principles of environmental justice. Since its founding in 2000, a core demand of EJAQC’s campaign platform has been the adoption of regional rules and policies to evaluate, limit, and reduce cumulative health risks. EJAQC brings invaluable direct expertise to BAEHC with these issues. Core members of EJAQC that participate in BAEHC include Greenaction for Environmental Health and Justice, Youth United for Community Action (based in East Palo Alto), West County Toxics Coalition, Communities for a Better Environment, and Hunters View Mothers Committee.
