Oil Spill at Inglewood Oil Field in Los Angeles County, California Sends Over 1,600 Gallons Flowing Near Communities, Sierra Club Reports April 9, 2021
“Yesterday’s oil spill is a deadly reminder that the environmental racism that’s shaped and harmed Black, Indigenous, and people of color continues to put our health at risk. A pattern of oil spills and the daily and ‘authorized’ toxic emissions both demonstrate that oil extraction is inherently dangerous practice that has no place in our region. We look forward to working with Los Angeles County to take immediate steps to phase out oil and gas production,” said Martha Dina Arguello, STAND-LA Coalition and Physicians for Social Responsibility-Los Angeles.
