November 2nd + 3rd 2021 Call to Action
What? Tell California to protect families and farmworkers by notifying the public before agricultural pesticide use Why? Pesticides are harmful to human health. Children born within 2.5 miles of heavy pesticide use are more at risk for leukemia. Over 2 MILLION pounds of pesticides are sprayed on Sonoma County farms each year (source: CDPR) When? Attend Webinars November 2 and 3 Nov 2nd 9-11:30am https://csus.zoom.us/j/87004541060 Nov 3rd 5:30-8pm https://csus.zoom.us/j/84628170866 Can't Attend: Email CDPR at ProjectNotify@cdpr.ca.gov Before 5pm on November 3 Tell CA Department of Pesticide Regulation (CDPR) to: 1. Establish a web-based system for notifications of pesticide use in multiple languages. Robo calls and door flyers are NOT public or transparent enough. 2. Notify the public of planned pesticide use 72 hours in advance. 3. Require farms to post prior notifications of pesticide use NOW, not in 2024.
