Environmental Justice and Health Equity

Several factors are coming together to answer the desire of the West Ventura community for a Westside Community Park. CAUSE is working with community members to organize around this issue and make their demands a reality.
The Santa Maria Chapter of CAUSE (at the time known as PUEBLO) won a major victory in 2012 to fight off the placement of a hazardous metal scrapyard in the middle of a low-income Latino neighborhood.
In August 2013, the Oxnard City Council voted to make the Del Norte Regional Recycling and Waste Transfer Station a publicly-operated facility rather than contracting out to a private company. The city will be running its recycling center beginning in February 2014 and is in the process of creating a business plan, which could include some major changes to transform trash in Oxnard.
CAUSE advocated for the city of Oxnard to end its multimillion dollar contract with a private corporation for recycling and instead publicly run the Del Norte recycling center to improve labor and environmental standards.
