Dvija Michael Bertish recently sat down with Jake Thomas, Web Editor & News Reporter of the Portland Observer on Portland Observer Hour, and discussed the history of Rosemere Neighborhood Association’s landmark environmental justice case as well as our dedicated work for environmental protection and improving the status of environmental justice communities.

In February of 2003, Rosemere Neighborhood Association (Rosemere) filed a Title VI administrative complaint with EPA’s Office of Civil Rights against the City of Vancouver, WA.  Rosemere filed a second Title VI complaint with the EPA in December 2003 alleging retaliation by the city of Vancouver, and then filed suit against EPA on two separate occasions citing EPA’s failure to accept, investigate, and issue findings on Rosemere’s complaints.

On March 19, 2010, Judge Benjamin H. Settle, US District Court of Washington, in a landmark decision, entered a Stipulated Judgment in favor of Rosemere in its case against the EPA, concluding a seven year stretch of administrative Title VI complaints and litigation.

We thank Mr. Thomas and the Portland Observer for this opportunity to be part of the Portland Observer Hour to discuss this ground-breaking case and our environmental protection work.
