Sacrifice Zones and Environmental Justice

Steve Lerner, Author, Sacrifice Zones
Bradley Angel, Executive Director, Greenaction for Health and Environmental Justice
Gail Smith, Environmental Activist, Daly City, Midway Village

Across the United States, thousands of people, most of them in low-income or minority communities, live next to heavily polluting industrial sites. Many of them reach the point where they say that enough is enough. Lerner tells the stories of 12 communities that rose to fight and had some success in reducing the pollution. He will be joined by Angel, who has worked with impacted communities throughout the United States for the past 24 years. Smith, a resident of an impacted community, will provide her perspective.
