I've found my voice by being involved with CBE. I now know who to call when I see flaring and smell that awful rotten egg (sulfur) smell. CBE keeps our community of Wilmington aware of the different sources of pollution and what we can do to live in a less polluted environment. We need to keep CBE in our community to educate more residents.

First time I was told to be at Communities for a Better environment from School-to-Career I didn't know what to expect at all. I was a summer youth intern from Oakland High School Environmental Science Academy, so my background knowledge of the environment helped me there. Together with Youth Uprising Youths we helped CBE build the foundation of evidence to show the Environmental Protection Agency that they are not doing their job in East Oakland. My opportunity there was awesome, staffs and volunteer were all nice and helpful. CBE's office is very laid-back and chill but when they need to get down to business they get serious. So my experience with CBE has been a very rewarding one because I've learned so many things that I could have not learned in school and probably anywhere else.

CBE is truly a grass-roots organization. AND, their work on environmental justice issues in California is truly unique. We all have a place and role in this great green movement, but CBE's role is particularly noteworthy. CBE is leading the way in protecting communities of color in the front line of disproportionately impacted industrial communities. Their staff are friendly, and good looking too. The work they do is pertinent, authentic, and totally community-based.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

organizing communities to feel empowered and to act on their own accord for their own protection.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

radically stop environmental injustice all over the nation.

Ways to make it better...

there were more CBEs all over the state.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the need for more staff to do their incredible work.

One thing I'd also say is that...
