Our morning workshop sessions will focus on the quality of air, soil, and water in Los Angeles County. Each workshop will include a panel of community advocacy, research, and policy experts discussing their perspectives on the topics addressed. Below is a description for each workshop:

AIR
Poor air quality disproportionately impacts low-income communities of color. Los Angeles still ranks as the dirtiest city by ozone in the nation. Industrial activities like urban oil production expose communities to harmful chemicals and toxic air contaminants, increasing rates for asthma and respiratory issues than communities with cleaner air. Exposure to ambient levels of air pollutants and toxic contaminants are associated with premature birth, low birth weight, and long-term neuro-developmental effects. Emissions from idle and old commercial trucks remain an unresolved issue in high traffic and industrial neighborhoods like the Port of LA and Wilmington communities.

SOIL
Ground soil contaminated by the Exide facility has caused the communities of Vernon, Bell, Commerce, Maywood, East LA, Huntington Park, Boyle Heights and other at-risk communities to spend decades fighting for thorough clean up and remediation to address land use issues. Cleanup and testing for contaminated soil has been slowed by health risks and community- and policy-related barriers. Lead abatement continues to plague these and other communities leading to many new healthy homes initiatives to restore homes and communities to be chemical-free. High blood lead is associated with miscarriage and pre-term birth, and can be transferred to children through breastfeeding.

WATER
Ensuring that water is drinkable, swimmable, fishable, pure and chemical-free is essential for healthy communities and families. Contaminated wells are of growing concern in Los Angeles County as fewer less-polluted wells remain in service. Most community drinking water systems rely partly on contaminated groundwater sources, and aquifers underneath the ground are plagued with industrial flows and dirty runoff pollution. Residents of Watts and other disenfranchised communities face dirty, discolored, and rusty tap water due to outdated water infrastructures.
