Environmental Justice and Health Equity

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.
This fall, CAUSE talked to 7,000 Central Coast residents about the Affordable Care Act. Our team raised awareness about the benefits of the law and showed thousands of people in our communities how to sign up for health coverage for their families.
CAUSE has joined a complaint against the United Water Conservation District for wasteful diversion of water from the Santa Clara River that leaves Ventura County vulnerable to drought and limits access to this important natural resource for local youth and families in the low-income communities of color along the river.
