At Street Level

At Street Level is a documentary film that shows how a small environmental justice NGO in West Oakland, California – the West Oakland Environmental Indicators Project – uses science to help convince policymakers that environmental changes are needed to increase local air quality that causes asthma. Situated adjacent to the Port of Oakland – the city of West Oakland is severely impacted by diesel particulate pollution. WOEIP initiated the “Personal Air Monitoring Project” to have students and out-of-work community members walk around the neighborhood with an industrial air-monitoring device to collect data about local air quality. The results of their research has brought WOEIP national attention – Congresswoman Barbara Lee and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson visited WOEIP for a presentation on their preliminary results.
