KPCC ran an article about how restorative justice techniques are beginning to take hold in L.A. Unified schools as suspensions and expulsions decline. Liberty Hill’s Brothers, Sons, Selves Coalition has been instrumental in advancing restorative justice in L.A.’s schools.

ENVIRONMENT

The oil company, Freeport McRoRan, announced that it would no longer pursue expanding its operation at the Jefferson drill site in South L.A.’s West Adams neighborhood. The announcement comes after Liberty Hill’s Fund for Environmental Health and Safety grantees, Redeemer Community Partnership and Esperanza Community Housing led organizing efforts to address the drill site’s toxic impact on the neighborhood. See the L.A. Times and KPCC for more.

At Liberty Hill Foundation we understand that we all need clean air, and we all deserve safe neighborhoods, free from toxic chemicals.  But for some Angelenos who live in close proximity to urban oil wells, these necessities don’t exist.  Noxious fumes and continuous earsplitting noise are part of everyday life near drill sites, which are often placed in low-income communities of color.  With oil companies looking to increase production, more families are being placed at a greater risk.  That’s why we has established the new Fund for Environmental Health and Safety, which puts resources in the hands of organizations working to keep communities safe from drilling’s dangerous side effects.

Fund for Environmental Health and Safety grantees, Redeemer Community Partnership and Esperanza Community Housing, put those resources into action on a recent Tuesday afternoon at City Hall.   Liberty Hill organizing partners and other community members attended a public hearing about oil drilling in South L.A.’s West Adams neighborhood to take a stand for environmental justice.
