This episode is recorded on the road as Dom travels with local community group, Safe Ag Safe Schools (SASS), to Sacramento to join organizations from all over California to call for the ban of the pesticide, chlorpyrifos. Chlorpyrifos was on the brink of being banned across the United States by the EPA under the Obama Administration. However, with the new administration in power, the use of chlorpyrifos is still being allowed. Hear from SASS organizer Lucia Calderon, co-director Mark Weller, and many of the local activists that came from Salinas, Watsonville, Greenfield, and Santa Cruz to join a demonstration of 250+ people in our state capital. Listen in and learn about a group that is working to make our local community safer.
