Children’s Environmental Health & Justice Champion Speaking at Green California Schools Summit & Exposition

Robina Suwol, Founder & Executive Director of California Safe Schools (CSS), www.calisafe.org, a celebrated children's environmental health & environmental justice non-profit coalition of more than fifty organizations located in Southern California committed to the health and safety of children, staff and community members who reside near school sites , will be speaking at the Green California Schools Summit & Exposition, December 10th in Pasadena, California.

CSS is internationally recognized for spearheading the most stringent pesticide policy in the nation at Los Angeles Unified School District (2nd largest in the USA). This policy called Integrated Pest Management Policy (IPM) uses low risk methods to eliminate pest and weeds. The policy was the first in the United States to embrace the Precautionary Principle and Parents Right to Know about pesticides used on school campuses. Today it has become the model for school districts and communities internationally.

October 6, 2005, Governor Schwarzenegger signed AB 405 (Montanez) sponsored by California Safe Schools. This law closes a loophole protecting more than 6 million California K-12 public school students, and hundreds of thousands of teachers and school employees from exposure to experimental pesticides whose health effects are unknown.

Since founding CSS, An articulate and compelling speaker, Suwol travels extensively providing workshops on environmental health & safety to parents, students, teachers, school administrators & government officials.

Suwol, was twice recognized by Volvo as an Environmental Hero (3rd & 5th) , the recipient of the Environmental Protection Agency Region 9 Environmental Award, Red Cross Women of Spirit Award, Los Angeles Children’s Council Leading Boldly Award, 2007 South Coast Air Quality District Environmental Stewardship Award, Western Regional Pollution Network Champion of the Year, UTNE Magazine “Visionary Who Are Changing the World” 2008, Prevention Magazine Hero, 2009 First Amendment Coalition Beacon Award, including numerous awards from local, state, federal agencies & government leaders.
