On Tuesday, July 17th, our team visited Arvin, California where City Council members voted unanimously to adopt a new oil & gas ordinance to protect the health and safety of Arvin residents, including 300 foot setback limits on oil and gas drilling. Thank you to all the wonderful organizers at Central California Environmental Justice Network - CCEJN, The Center on Race, Poverty & the Environment, and many others, for speaking with us and for allowing us to be apart of such a beautiful and historic moment for the city of Arvin.
Congratulations to the residents of Arvin!

Join us at Arvin City Council where the city will be making an historic vote to update their oil and gas ordinance to include human health buffer zones to protect residents of Arvin from toxic neighborhood drilling. Organizers and community members are asking the City Council to adopt the proposed revisions to the oil and gas ordinance and strengthen the ordinance by expanding the buffer distance and applying it to existing operations.
