Pollution Prevention Success Story: Partnering with Promotoras
Internet-based seminar
Hosted by U.S. EPA

This seminar will feature Denise Moreno Ramírez, MS, from the University of Arizona Superfund Research Program and will focus on working with promotoras to implement a successful pollution prevention program targeting small businesses in Tucson. Pollution prevention (P2) is an environmental management strategy that focuses on reducing or eliminating waste at the source, thus limiting the amount of future pollution requiring clean-up. Denise Moreno Ramírez, MS, Community Engagement Coordinator, will discuss a successful P2 case study targeting predominately Hispanic small businesses located in low-income areas in Tucson, Arizona. She will detail how a community health advocate (promotora) strategy provided comprehensive education and outreach to local small business owners. The contributions of delivering tailored information, developing targeted trainings, and fostering community leadership to successful reductions in waste and energy consumption and reduced worker exposures will be described. Such P2 interventions demonstrate the importance of this type of approach as a foundation for environmental protection as well as public health.
