1948 - 1994

Community activist and environmentalist, Chappell Hayes was the driving force behind the Clean Air Alternative Coalition which successfully convinced CalTrans to re-route the new Cypress freeway away from West Oakland neighborhoods. Mr. Hayes developed programs for at-risk youth and helped to redefine environmental issues to include broader urban concerns, such as poverty and racism. As an entrepreneur, community leader, member of many boards and commissions, and devoted community builder, Mr. Hayes raised the consciousness of West Oakland residents and neighbors, including the Port of Oakland, to work for clean air and environmental justice.

"Chappell was an inspiration to so many in his life, one whose priorities were so appropriate and whose humanity was so manifest."
- Congressman Ronald V. Dellums
