On July 13th, staff from Pesticide Action Network, the Kern County Agricultural Commissioner, and the Department of Pesticide Regulation presented on drift catching, pesticide enforcement, worker safety, air/water monitoring and conduction of a swab test demonstration on pesticide residues. The organizer the Center on Race, Poverty and the Environment is partnering with five environmental agencies to provide hands on tools and demonstrations to community members so they can help reduce pollution/violations in their neighborhoods.

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.
