Ep 13: Protecting the People - a Fenceline Community's Fight for Environmental Justice
In the first of two episodes, we explore the lived experiences and grassroots work of the Cherokee Concerned Citizens, an organization dedicated to protecting the health and well-being of their fenceline community. Our guests, Barbara and Jennifer, discuss what it's like living next to production plants for companies like Chevron, VT Halter, First Chemical, and Mississippi Phosphates, and what they're doing to fight environmental injustice.
A survey conducted by the Cherokee Concerned Citizens revealed pervasive respiratory issues. Check out the results here.
