Cambridge, MA: Sacrifice Zones
Sacrifice Zones: What They Are and What We Can Do
A sacrifice zone is a community that has historically borne an overload of pollution and industrial toxins. You may live in, work in, or travel through one every day.
We are delighted to be welcoming state senator Pat Jehlen, who will be telling us about her bill addressing transportation pollution and how we can support it. We’ll also be joined by Ellin Reisner from the Somerville Transportation Equity Partnership (STEP), talking about her group’s work and community impacts from transportation pollution along I-93.
And we’ll watch the short documentary The Sacrifice Zone, about one community’s fight for environmental justice.
Come listen, learn, and engage!
