Fellows fight to keep oil wastewater out of California's food system

Should California crops be watered with oil drilling wastewater? This question was on the table as the Bay Area ACE Fellows partnered with the Center for Biological Diversity to push the Toxics Free Table Bill earlier this year. This bill would ban fossil fuel companies from selling oil drilling wastewater to California farmers, a practice that is currently legal and in use across the state.

At HKonJ, movements unite around justice

On the morning of February 11, I headed to downtown Raleigh to participate in the HKonJ Moral March on Raleigh, a march calling to protect the rights and liberties of all citizens, especially marginalized groups, from discriminatory legislation and policies at all levels of government. I was to be one out of tens of thousands of people attending one of the largest marches in state history, and though it was my first time going to any march, I felt like I was part of something very welcoming.

My message to Pruitt: don't kill the EPA.

On February 25, following the confirmation of Scott Pruitt as head of the Environmental Protection Agency, over a hundred Bay Area residents gathered outside of the EPA headquarters. The attendees were dressed in black funeral attire and carried flowers as part of a mock funeral, demonstrating the dire consequences that Scott Pruitt's appointment would have on the agency. Five ACE Fellows and two of their friends were among the crowd. The crowd each received a postcard on which they wrote a note of solidarity to the EPA employees.
