710 Community Petition

Since 2001 The Coalition for Environmental Health and Justice (CEHAJ) has been working with communities along the 710 corridor to create a healthy and just project. After much advocacy and efforts to ensure the benefits are for community, we have hit a wall where again Government agencies are not being responsive to community needs. We urge you to join the campaign and sign the petition below. Check out the position statement here.

“My name is _______ and I am a resident of the East LA, South East LA, and Long Beach communities that would be impacted by the Proposed 710 Expansion Project. I am asking you to prioritize our communities by ensuring these following elements for the final plan:

i. No Displacement

ii. Prioritize Health: Zero Emissions Freight Corridor

iii. Local and Targeted Hire for Disadvantaged Residents

I demand that CalTrans and Metro DO NOT move forward with a project UNTIL the above have been addressed and approved.

Sincerely,
