We Have the Power to Change Our Future, and We’re Doing Something About It
Fresh Air Vallejo is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit organization in the city of Vallejo, California, advocating for community Health, Environment, Environmental Justice, and Education. We work collaboratively with regional, state, and national allies on a range of issues, from climate change and remediation efforts to reviewing proposed industrial and development projects. Fresh Air Vallejo acknowledges the land where we live: the ancestral home of Patwin people, including the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation who have remained committed to the stewardship of this land over many centuries: cherished and protected, as elders have instructed their young through generations. We are grateful and honored to live here on their unceded, traditional territories.
From 2015 to 2019, Fresh Air Vallejo worked to stop a disastrous proposal for a marine terminal and cement plant on Vallejo’s waterfront that would have operated 24/7 bringing fly ash, slag, and other hazardous materials, off-loaded in the open air. Their Draft Environmental Impact Report made it clear that their business would generate toxic air pollution exceeding legal limits close to an elementary school, senior housing, and other at-risk communities. This became the genesis of Fresh Air Vallejo, and are a few of many issues tackled by our volunteers. In May 2019, the project applicant withdrew thanks to our efforts and those of innumerable other supporters, agencies, organizations, and neighbors – possibly even you!
