Founded in 1977, Californians Against Waste is a non-profit environmental research and advocacy organization that identifies, develops, promotes and monitors policy solutions to pollution and conservation problems posing a threat to public health and the environment. Californians Against Waste's history has demonstrated it to be the nation's oldest, largest and most effective non-profit environmental organization advocating for the implementation of waste reduction and recycling policies and programs.
Californians Against Waste believes that when manufacturers are required to internalize the environmental externalities (costs) of material extraction, processing and manufacturing pollution, and end-of-life waste management in a product price, the market-place motivates them to reduce consumption, replace virgin resources with recycled materials, reduce toxicity and waste, design for maximum life and recyclability, and generally improve sustainability. This concept of Producer Responsibility lies at the root of virtually every legislative policy that CAW has pursued for the last 42 years.

COALITION OF CONCERNED MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS (CCMP) is an all-volunteer effort, rooted in the community, founded in the Bay Area in 1976. CCMP is independent from government funding or any funding with strings attached. CCMP is structured as a free and voluntary unincorporated private membership association not as a 501(c)(3). CCMPs primary purpose is to overcome political and economic barriers that deny access to comprehensive medical care for any and all working people. This has included conducting campaigns to defeat laws or governmental policies detrimental to the interests of low-income workers.

CCMP takes an approach that incorporates medical care, ancillary health services, procurement of healthy foods for supplemental food distributions and joining with organizations of low-income workers whose members suffer lack of access to quality, affordable care. 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.

CCMP volunteer health care professionals donate preventive care to applicants screened for eligibility by CCMP benefit program volunteers. Many benefit recipients are members of self-help organizations of low-income workers.
