The Clean Up Green Up campaign aims to transform Los Angeles communities most impacted by industrial pollution into vibrant and healthy places for families to live. Specifically, the campaign proposes to create “green zones” in the City of Los Angeles that will:
- Protect public health by using planning tools to mitigate pollution in these heavily impacted communities
- Invest in economic development with financial and planning incentives to retain jobs and create new, green enterprises
- Reduce existing environmental hazards through streamlined inspection and enforcement; and
- Expand public-private partnerships to leverage outside resources
The Clean Up Green Up campaign is sponsored by the following grassroots organizations, and is supported by organizations, businesses and individuals throughout the Los Angeles region, who recognize that only when you begin to address the problems where they are the worst, can you improve conditions for all Angelenos.
