Environmental Justice Series at the IoES Event #2

February 24, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Cynthia Babich
Executive Director of the Del Amo Action Committee

Cynthia Babich serves as the Executive Director of the Del Amo Action Committee. The DAAC is a grassroots community-based environmental justice organization concerned about DDT contamination and related health problems in the unincorporated Los Angeles Harbor Gateway neighborhood. The Del Amo area includes two superfund sites responsible for the presence of DDT and other contaminants within the community.

Cynthia successfully led a campaign that resulted in the relocation of residents from homes impacted by DDT contamination. She continues to work to protect public health within the Del Amo community while advocating for new approaches to environmental and chemical policies at the local, state, and national levels.

Refreshments will be served.
