FOEJN represents the affected communities in the Fort Ord area and Seaside, Marina, CSUMB, Salinas, Del Rey Oaks, Monterey, Pacific Grove, Highway 68, and beyond, in the cleanup of contamination and ordinance-related waste.

One of the goals of FOEJN is to continue to work with the impacted communities, interested health experts, and responsible agencies to secure funds for the construction of an Environmental Health Center and Clinic.

On June 28, 2004 FOEJN hosted a community forum at Seaside High School. Peter deFur, PhD, was hired by FOEJN with the assistance of the EPA Technical Assistance grant, to assist the impacted community members with commenting to the Army and summarizing reports for the community.

FOEJN brought in Dr. Lovell Jones, a renowned Oncologist, to present a PowerPoint viewing on the Environmental Justice community and the lack of good health care. Especially those living on and near Military Superfund sites, that are on the National Priority lists. About 13 highschool students participated with a youth powerpoint presentation.
