Communities have delayed the Southern California International Gateway railyard project, but Mayor Bass needs to scrap this project once and for all. Send a message telling them to prioritize the health and safety of frontline communities.

A proposed railyard project threatens the health, safety, and quality of life for surrounding communities. The Southern California International Gateway (SCIG) would increase toxic air pollution, fuel the climate crisis, and increase traffic and noise in a low-income community of color already disproportionately impacted by environmental hazards.
Every community deserves a say in their future, and that’s especially true when it involves a massive project that would bring huge negative impacts. Residents of West Long Beach, Wilmington, and Carson have made it clear they strongly oppose SCIG. We need to amplify their message: Officials can’t steamroll their opposition and move forward against the community’s will.
NRDC, East Yard Communities for Environmental Justice, Century Villages at Cabrillo, and other allies are working together to help ensure that every concerned resident can make their voice heard about the serious impacts of this disastrous project.
While the project has been repeatedly delayed as a result of lawsuits, there’s still no indication that Mayor Bass plans to scrap the plan. It’s time to end this hazardous project once and for all. Share your opposition to SCIG by sending in a comment today.
