We call on you, Governor Brown, to protect our food and our health.
Protect California Food is a growing coalition of environmental justice, agriculture, health, political, and environmental organizations working together to stop the dangerous practice of irrigating California crops with toxic oil waste.
In The Central Valley, oil wastewater, potentially filled with toxic chemicals, is being using to irrigate our food. Plans for the expansion of this practice are currently underway. There has been no comprehensive independent testing conducted to ensure these crops or the farmworkers who work with them are protected from the hundreds of chemicals used in oil operations, some of which have been shown to be carcinogenic and toxic. We're tired of being lab rats in an oil and gas experiment, so we're calling on Governor Brown and the State Water Board to end this practice immediately. Join us!
