Communities for a Better Environment

September 2008

The report was put together by Communities for a Better Environment and other partners, the California Air Resources Board, Manuel Pastor of the University of Southern California's Program for Environmental and Regional Equity; James Sadd, Associate Professor of Environmental Science at Occidental College; and Rachel Morello-Frosch, who is currently at UC-Berkeley and was formerly an Assistant Professor at the Center for Environmental Studies and the Department of Community Health at Brown University.

The study addresses the environmental effects of toxic pollution, such as idling diesel trucks and pollution from auto-shop repairs and chemical companies.
