Communities for a Better Environment (CBE)

CBE supports youth from Wilmington and the small municipalities of Southeast LA. CBE provides youth and community leadership for Stand Against Neighborhood Drilling (STAND LA) campaign work in Wilmington.

The youth represent 8 high schools, where 2,500 youth are reached each year through school-based outreach during Campus Club Week. Each high school club sustains at least 25, and up to 50 members year-round. Nearly 100% of CBE’s youth members are people of color; approximately 70% are from immigrant families.
