The Center for Environmental Health (CEH) is committed to supporting the local efforts of community leaders to defend against unsafe toxic exposures in their communities. So, when government regulators failed to adequately respond to East Oakland residents’ concerns about the cancer-causing diesel engine exhaust coming from Green Sage’s nine trailer-sized generators, CEH and the Environmental Democracy Project (EDP) partnered with the Oakland Cannery Collective (the Collective), the resident group that had been advocating on the issue, to take legal action.
Throughout 2022, CEH has reached legally-binding, court-enforceable agreements with some of the companies. We applaud those that have elected to reformulate their products to remove not only BPA, but all bisphenols, from their socks.
We at the Center for Environmental Health unequivocally condemn Ye’s antisemitic remarks, the Goyim Defense League’s hateful antisemitic messages hung on a banner over the 405 freeway in Los Angeles, and former President Trump’s reiteration of the antisemitic trope that American Jews have dual loyalties to the U.S. and Israel.
Today’s U.S. Supreme Court decision in West Virginia v. EPA undermines the agency’s ability to regulate emissions from fossil fuel fired power plants under the Clean Air Act, endangering public health and the environment.
We stand for the rights of individual autonomy and bodily integrity, we believe healthcare is a human right, and we believe in sexual and reproductive justice for all.
CEH applauds the FDA’s decision to protect public health and children’s health by removing Juul products from the U.S. market.
