Environmental Health Workgroup

Join us in our campaigns for clean air, sustainable neighborhoods, and environmental justice.

Our workgroup focuses on improving the environmental health and quality for all residents in West and Central Long Beach. With our communities sharing a fence with the 710 Freeway and the Port of Long Beach, protecting our air quality and the sustainability of our communities is our main priority. For more information about the Environmental Health Workgroup, email Amy Cabrera Rasmussen at amy.c.rasmussen@gmail.com. For the next workgroup meeting, visit www.bhclongbeach.org/calendar
