Why this petition matters

Started by Candace Stallworth

     It has been over two months and those who reside in Carson, California and communities close by are still experiencing a stench of rotten eggs. 
The city of Los Angeles have me send me a statement so regarding the order, but where is the action? People in the nearby neighborhoods have complained over and over. Even some have suffered from health conditions such as migraines, headaches, sore throat and even nosebleeds. The odor was so bad that the city of Carson had to issue a state of emergency. Official say reduced water flow in the passage caused a major back up. A fire back in late September had caused large amounts of hydrogen sulfide to overflow into the water canal causing live plants to decay and cause a horrible smell. 
     Although I do not reside in Carson I am a Los Angeles resident. As a community member I can see traits of environmental racism. It has been credible stories that with communities with high demographics of blacks and browns have been exposed to higher rates of pollution. The city has failed to tend to its tenants and is taking their precious time. By signing this position it will not only help the city of Carson but will help residents get their equity.
