EMF Aware - Santa Cruz - is a community advocacy group, promoting increased awareness of the health effects from wireless radiation, safe uses of technology and greater community involvement with these issues that affect us all.
We worked together with the Santa Cruz City Council in 2019 to create a very protective small cell ordinance.
Our outreach efforts include hosting events - speaking at public hearings - and sharing information with the community We also publish an email newsletter, with 280 subscribers.
On our Facebook page, we post accurate, science based information and videos - local actions to take - public hearings & meetings to attend - and ways to minimize wireless radiation exposure with safe use of technology.
Currently there are plans for the installation of 100’s of 4G/5G “small cell” antennas in our neighborhoods, outside our bedroom windows, on light poles and downtown streets - which will emit wireless radiation day and night.
This roll-out of increased wireless radiation is being mandated by the FCC, without our informed consent. Scientific studies have shown clear evidence of DNA and neurological damage, breaks to the blood/brain barrier, cognitive and sleep disturbances, and cancer - at levels far below the current FCC
“safe” exposure limits.
