TheVoiceOfJoyce It’s bad enough experiencing Economic Inequality. It’s worse to believe that Low Income Communities are dumping grounds for toxic industries. If affluent Communities won’t tolerate these industries, why should poorer communities be Burdened ❓ In Chicago’s South Side , the Latino Community is on a hunger strike to prevent a Scrap metal plant from being built, after being forced out of the North Chicago’s wealthier Suburbs. This situation is similar to the Flint Michigan water problem, an unnecessary diversion of good clean water to benefit a few! In California, they’re setting up buffer zones for any gas or fossil fuel extraction! Let’s continue this trend. No toxic fumes near Communities. All people deserve clean air and clean water. Income doesn’t define a person’s worth!!
