Environmental protection laws fight pollution in your neighborhood.
For decades, California’s environmental protection laws have been crucial tools for communities standing up to dangerous construction projects. Large commercial construction projects come with large environmental and public health impacts, but environmental rules and regulations help to ensure clean air, good water, and safety for our communities and families.
California’s environmental protection laws provide a way for underrepresented and underserved Californians to stand up for their families, their neighbors, and their health. In frontline communities across the state, these laws empower low-income Californians and people of color to have a voice in the land use decisions that impact their future and health.
