We believe the local communities need an organization like CEASRA. Here are a few reasons why:
Local, regional, state and federal governmental agencies are not always required to be advocates for the communities they serve.
Governmental agencies only know what is presented or reported to them.
Businesses may or may not be good environmental stewards.
Businesses can repeatedly violate laws and still be allowed to operate.
Community members need and deserve an un-biased information source for environmental issues.
Community members need a strong unified voice with elected officials and governmental agencies
CITIZENS' ENVIRONMENTAL ASSOCIATION OF THE SLIPPERY ROCK AREA
CEASRA has worked toward protecting our environment for over 30 years, with the help of many people. We continue our opposition to the proposed Tri-County Landfill (TCL) while focusing on expanding our agencies and other environmental groups.
CEASRA is always looking for community involvement.
- members to help with contacting community and government leaders to educate them on environmental issues
-assistance in fundraising; the ongoing Tri-County opposition brings significant legal costs.
-members willing to contact neighbors, business, church and other entities for help, education and fundraising -public speakers & educators
-young families, college and high school students who are passionate about protecting our environment and the future
