Let's Raise Our voice. Let's Build Our Power.

“We can’t expect government to come and solve our problems. Our government is just a process, and you either know how to use that process, and it’s systems and its tools, or you don’t.” - Penny Newman, Founder of CCAEJ

For decades, the Center for Community Action and Environmental Justice has been a tool for our community to fight back.

Decades ago, when mothers discovered that reckless pollution from the Stringfellow Acid Pits was poisoning their children, they built power, raised their voice and fought back. CCAEJ formed to give our community the tools to not only fight back, but win. 

Decades later, CCAEJ is still here for our community. It continues to provide us the infrastructure we need to turn our voices into victories, the firepower we need to turn our responsibility to our families into a safer, healthier future. CCAEJ provides us the knowledge we need to wield our voices as powerful agents of change.

CCAEJ runs on the driven voices of our community members, but it also needs money to operate.

If you have the means, we humbly ask for a tax-deductible donation to the Center so our community can have the access to the tools to continue to raise our voice and build our power.
