Communities for a Better Environment (CBE) is an environmental health and justice organization, promoting clean air, clean water, and the development of toxin-free communities. CBE’s unique three-part strategy provides grassroots activism, environmental research, and legal assistance within underserved urban communities. CBE directly equips residents impacted by industrial pollution with the tools to inform, monitor, and transform their immediate environment. CBE sponsors youth oriented programs for students ages 12-18 in Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay area and in surrounding communities called Youth for Environmental Justice (Youth-EJ). Youth play an active leadership role in advocating clean air, clean water, and a cleaner urban environment.
