We need new policies for our protection.

Everyaction,

Californians deserve to know about hazardous agricultural pesticides used near their homes and workplaces. But some local officials are fighting efforts to shine a light on when and where toxic chemicals are sprayed.

This is disastrous for farmworkers and frontline communities with chronic pesticide exposure. They have among the highest rates of cancer, neurodevelopment disorders and respiratory illnesses in the country — all major risk factors for COVID-19.

Hazardous pesticides are also deadly to some of California's most imperiled wildlife, like salmon and red-legged frogs.

Tell California regulators that the public needs know, in real time, exactly when toxic pesticides are proposed for spraying in their community.
