COMMUNITY MEETING  AUGUST 5TH, GONZALES CA GROUP PHOTO    COMMUNITY MEETING  AUGUST 5TH, GONZALES CA MEETING ROOM

COMMUNITY MEETING AUGUST 5TH, GONZALES CA
Greenaction for Health and Asamblea de Gonzales, Youth Academy, organized a community meeting where residents had an opportunity to learn about Monterey County - Pesticide Program and Pesticide Drift. The focus of the meeting was to engage residents in decision-making process with State and County regulatory agencies on environmental health and environmental justice issues. Plus, it was a great opportunity for the Monterey County Agricultural Commissioner, Henry Gonzales, to listen to concerns from the community.


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.
