Join us to help develop a plan to address health impacts from air pollution in Sacrifice Zones. To address this issue of collective or cumulative air toxic impacts Center for Health, Environment and Justice and Texas Health & Environmental Alliance would like your voice and feedback on a proposal to reduce air toxins and provide health related services to communities living in Sacrifice Zones. This meeting is planned to review several policy ideas. We need community voices to explore what's useful, what needs to be thrown out and what needs to be added, in a federal policy to reduce or eliminate public health risks from air pollution.
This is the first of several community conversations we will be holding across the country to obtain real fence-line community voices in a policy before suggesting anyone takes it to capitol hill for introduction.
