|Who we are|
|The Concerned Citizens of Freetown is open to any resident who resides in the town of Freetown. We are dedicated to a better quality of life for all who live in our town and we will share the knowledge we have with anyone who is concerned about the environment and residents who are adversely affected by growing development.
CCF continues to recruit new members and gather community support from other grassroots organizations from Boston, New Bedford, and local communities on Southeastern Massachusetts. Concerned Citizens of Freetown's Environmental Justice Awareness Program continues to educate the citizens of Freetown about the functions of both state and federal environmental protection agencies, environmental regulations and the law, environmental pollution, toxic waste, health hazards and safety issues.
CCF members attend town meetings on a frequent basis to address environmental issues and concerns. They are also involved with decision strategies and plans to halt industrial development in their residential community. Members, supporters and volunteers participate in activities and events planned by the organization.
Official members of this grassroots organization include the Rev. Curtis D. Dias, Director; David Branco and Ed Lopes, community liaision.
