 Mission Statement  

The Rogers-Eubanks Coalition to End Environmental Racism (CEER) is an organization founded in 2007 to reverse the decision of the Orange County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) to place a regional solid waste transfer station (SWTS) in the Rogers-Eubanks community, to redress the injustices that affect the health and safety of residents in the neighborhoods which abut the Orange County Landfill, and to ensure that Rogers-Eubanks community residents and all North Carolinians have affordable access to safe drinking water, sanitary waste disposal, and safe communities.

CEER objectives are as follows:

  • Eliminate the regional solid waste transfer station (SWTS) in the Rogers-Eubanks community and ensure adequate public funding so that all Rogers-Eubanks community residents can tap on to Orange Water and Sewer Authority (OWASA) drinking water and sewer service.
  • Provide outreach advocacy, onsite training and technical assistance for low income people of color communities focusing on water, solid waste, sanitary waste and storm water issues affecting them.
  • Educate Chapel Hill/Carrboro/Orange County residents and organizations about environmental injustice and its relationship to water, sanitary waste, and solid waste, fire, police, and emergency services.
  • Promote, monitor, and influence environmental protection policies and practices affecting drinking water quality, sewage, solid waste, fire, police, and emergency services in Orange County, North Carolina.
