---------------------------


The San Francisco Chapter (CASS-SF) is active with many dedicated individuals. If you live in San Francisco, please join us in our efforts!

---------------------------


The Monterey Bay area is active with what we call "CASS Action Teams", as can be viewed below. If you need to submit an idea or have a question about meetings, please use the below email addresses to contact a CASS representative.


Outreach Action Team
Outreach/Alliance Building/Leadership Team. This team is designed to elicit the support and unification of other like-minded individuals and organizations locally, state wide and nationally. The efforts of CASS were instrumental in getting the Sierra Club and the City of Albany to formally oppose the pesticide spraying program.
Contact: Elizabeth Quinn

Economics & Political Action Team
This team is designed to focus on the economic issues that are at the fundamental root of this spraying program and to develop strategies for achieving political solutions against the spray.


Health Action Team
This team focuses on the human health aspects of this spray. Two health reports outlining the potential toxicity of the spray (CASS) and highlighting more than 600 adverse effects (HOPE) were released to the public at a press conference on Jan. 4th at the Santa Cruz City Council Chambers. These were delivered to the Santa Cruz County Health Department, the State Health Department and key legislators in Sacramento, as well as Senators Boxer and Feinstein, and Governor Schwarzenegger. Other reports are in process. Needs: Health professionals, toxicologists, and scientists who can highlight the health consequences of the State's pesticide spraying program and help in the development or review of technical health reports.


Legal Action Team
This team is designed to elicit the support and unification of other like-minded individuals and organizations locally, state wide and nationally. The efforts of CASS were instrumental in getting the Sierra Club and the City of Albany to formally oppose the pesticide spraying program.


Enviromental Action Team
This team focuses on the potential impact of the spray on the environment. More than 700 dead seabirds were reported immediately following the first Santa Cruz Spray. The papers reported it had nothing to do with the spray yet no definitive evidence has been given demonstrating this and there is data that suggest otherwise. Needs: Biologists, chemists, entomologists, forestry experts, and environmental scientists who can help in the development or review of technical environmental impact documents.

Media Action Team
Media and PR are focused on getting the news out about all aspects of the State's program, collecting, responding to, and archiving of all LBAM-Spray related articles, and acting as a information resource for the community at large and local, state, and national media. Needs: Professional journalists, investigative journalists, writers, editors, and graphic designers.


Legislative Action Team
The long term solution to prevent future sprayings requires legislation. A draft legislative proposal has been proposed and initial efforts seeking political sponsors of such legislation has begun. Needs: Experienced legislative writers, lobbyists, and political activists.

Fundraising Action Team
Raising funds to support all the activities of CASS to stop the spray. This group is just now starting so please jump in and help us with this important area. Needs: Professional and amateur fundraisers, contacts with fundraisers, contacts with those with the financial resources to make a difference and care about the health of our community and environment; fundraising ideas (benefit concerts, bake sales, raffles).
