Put your words into ACTION!!!!

Join a Social Justice Committee!!!

Teens have a voice in Fillmore and Piru.  We discuss what areas need to be changed and we work hard to improve our community.  If you have an idea about a change that needs to happen in our community and want help with making that change, you are invited to join Social Justice Committees at the One Step Center!!! 

Present Social Justice Committees:

  • Transportation:  Goal: To improve transportation between Fillmore and Piru:  This group meets regularly and attends/speaks to the Transportation Commission in order to: 1) establish a fixed bus route between Fillmore-Rancho Sespe-Piru; 2) establish fixed bus stops for the route.  The committee feels that this solution will improve service and might even save enough money that the hours of service could be extended.  MEETS EVERY MONDAY @ 4:00PM
  • Diversity Club:  Goal:  To reduce bullying of youth at both Fillmore High School and Fillmore Middle School, with particular concern for LGBTQIA youth.  This club works with the Ventura County Rainbow Alliance to identify ways to meet the needs of youth of diversity and their allies.  They meet regularly.  Last year they sponsored the first Day of Silence at Fillmore High School to demonstrate the difficulty of keeping something secret.  MEETS EVERY TUESDAY @ 4:00PM
  • SuperFund Clean Up Site:  Goal:  To get the Superfund site cleaned up.  The site is north of hwy 126 and east of Pole Creek.  Recently there has been evidence of a plume of contaminated soil from the the Superfund Site.  This might indicate a contamination of the under ground water sources.  MEETS EVERY THURSDAY @ 4:00PM
