Resources

BAEHC has a variety of resources available to the public as educational tools which are available here to download and/or available as a hard copy. These resources include our cumulative impact maps, our brochure, Still Toxic Report, recommendations/protocols to BAAQMD, and the popular education curriculum.

 

Cumulative Impact Maps

These maps show the buildup of air pollution sources, showing how these are related to the racial demographics in the Bay Area.  

  The maps marked cumulative maps that build on the previous one must be used as a set, which means they should be used one after the other to convey the concept of cumulative impacts - the impacts on a community of the sum of all stressors experienced including multiple toxic pollution sources (mobile and stationary); unhealthy, unsafe, and poorly maintained housing; noises; lack of jobs; gentrification; etc.

If you would like to be emailed our cumulative impact maps powerpoint templates, they are to be used in conjunction with Unit 1 of the Pop Ed Curriculum (which are also available upon request).

What We Want
Bay Area communities are not adequately protected from the harmful effects of exposure to air pollution. Current regulation of public health risk ignores the overall impact of all such exposures – i.e., the cumulative effect of exposure to multiple pollutants from numerous sources over time. To better protect the health of all Bay Area communities, especially those that are particularly vulnerable, we seek the actions defined in this statement to be carried out by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District.
BAEHC Protocols/Recommendations to the Bay Area Air Quality Management District
The Bay Area Environmental Health Collaborative (BAEHC) submitted a series of protocols and recommendations to BAAQMD: 1. Pollution Reduction Protocol; 2. Participation in regulatory proceedings (March 2009); 3. Language Access (September 2008) 4. Website Improvements (December 2008)

Still Toxic Report
This report, prepared for BAEHC by the Center for Justice, Tolerance, and Community (CJTC) at U.C. Santa Cruz, analyzes air pollution data and demography in the San Francisco Bay Area. It finds that low-income, people of color and immigrants are disproportionately exposed to toxic air pollution and its associated health risks.
