The San Joaquin County Agricultural Commissioner (CAC), Lideres Campesinas, and DPR organized a two-day (June 18th & 19th, 2018) Environmental Justice Pesticide Enforcement Workshop in Stockton. The 25 workshop attendees were community leaders, advocacy groups, State & local organizations who wanted to learn more about DPR and the CAC programs and regulations, especially when protecting fieldworkers/handlers. Speakers were staff from DPR, USEPA, Region 9, CAC, Lideres Campesinas, Mexican Consulate, a Pesticide Applicator, Pesticide Advisor and two Growers, all experts on their field. Simultaneous Interpretation to Spanish was also provided.

Treating people fairly guides how DPR conducts its activities. Fair treatment means that no one group of people, including racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic groups, should be disproportionately impacted by pesticides. Anyone whose health or environment may be affected by pesticides holds a stake in DPR's decisions. We want to ensure that all have an opportunity to participate in the regulatory process.
