This past summer, a group of Fresno residents who are part of CCEJN’s pesticide & advocacy trainings decided to launch a campaign to ban the cancer-causing pesticide RoundUp in Fresno Unified School District’s (FUSD) schools.
The victory that took place in Arvin on July 17th, 2018, was only part of the decade-long work by the community and organizations representing environmental justice in Kern County.
This year that is about to end has been extremely busy for EJ advocates working to ban the hazardous pesticide chlorpyrifos.
