Pollution Inequality Must Stop

“Dr. Brita Lundberg – “Deliberately locating industry in environmental justice (EJ) communities, low income and minority communities that already disproportionately suffer from legacy pollutants due to the many industries located historically in their midst, is a glaring example of structural racism. Three energy infrastructure projects approved by the Baker administration in EJ communities around Boston in the last several years perpetuated this racist precedent: 1. the electric substation in East Boston; 2. the peaker plant in Peabody; and 3. the natural gas compressor in Weymouth.”
