CCMP may choose to align with community groups to change conditions creating poor health, including environmental concerns.

CCMP urgently needs VOLUNTEERS: doctors, nurses, dentists, medical and dental specialists, physical therapists, dental hygienists, students and all those with a willingness to learn how to organize to fight the conditions which deny comprehensive medical care to workers and their families here in the Bay Area.
