  •  fair haven communities with latino, black and immigrant residents cast fishing lines along the river downstream from the power plant.
  • People of color are disproportionately harmed by neglected environmental issues. 
  • Blacks and latinos are more likely than whites to live dangerously close to environmental hazards.
  • While majority white, middle- income and wealthy communities enjoy relative insulation from the risks of living near hazardous facilities, a lack of political representation on environmental issues makes it more difficult for racial minorities in poorer neighborhoods to combat injustices
