Environmental Justice

Part 1: Race & Place

Part 2: Shipyards & The Buffer Zone

Part 3: Sensing Toxicity

LOCATION: Begin at Beardsly and Newton. Walk north-west and loop around the perimeter of the Perkins Elementary to Main and Beardsly.

ABOUT: On this stop, you will walk around the areas adjacent to Perkins Elementary School. Georgette Gómez, Associate Director of the Environmental Health Coalition (EHC), and Community Organizer Maria Moya explain the dangers of toxic industries in the Barrio and the work that has been done to clean up Barrio Logan and educate the community. They discuss a recently proposed plan to separate industrial sites from residential and communal areas. I also interview local works and residents about the struggle to find a balance between the needed industries while maintaining a healthy living environment.
