Supports community-based efforts to reduce air pollution and mobilize at-risk local residents to advocate for reduced pollution emissions. Activists will center around advocating for stricter rules around fracking – especially in the Shafter area, mobilizing farmers and farmworkers to participate in the permit process of the proposed Hydrogen Energy California project near Buttonwillow, and encouraging community engagement with CARB and SJAPCD’s environmental justice advisory groups.
