Pollution from sources, like industrial facilities and lead hazards tend to more disproportionately affect low income and communities of color. As a result, people in these communities live with conditions that potentially harm their health and drive down their property values.
We must act boldly to protect our hardest hit communities by urging our state elected officials to pass bills that would ensure all children are tested for lead exposure, empower the voices of residents within Environmental Justice communities and require cumulative environmental impact assessments be done before facilities can be built or expanded in Environmental Justice areas.
Join us for a Lobby Day & Rally for Environmental Justice in Harrisburg on June 6th! It takes strength in numbers to achieve the change we want and need. Lunch and transportation out of Pittsburgh and Philadelphia will be provided. All you need to do is bring your voice and passion! RSVP below.
