Savannah River Site (SRS)

The Harambee House, Inc./Citizens for Environmental Justice (HH/CFEJ) created the Community Alliance on Savannah River Site to organize African Americans in South Carolina and Georgia to influence policy and practice around nuclear waste management, clean-up and public participation at the Savannah River Site (SRS). It work was concentrated in two main areas: (1) The Savannah River Site (SRS) and the Department of Energy (DOE) weapons complex; and (2) industrial poisoning of communities.

HH/CFEJ's activism around the Savannah River Site (SRS) created a new level of stakeholder engagement by connecting economically marginalized and politically disenfranchised communities to SRS site officials, private contractors and federal agencies. As a result, all forged new relationships and worked collectively to determine beneficial solutions to the on-going environmental challenges at the Savannah River Site (SRS).
