Usually, we hear about the need for Environmental Justice because of
the health tragedies that were allowed to get out of control. Asthma
rates near the ports. Cancer Alley along the lower Mississippi.
Pesticide-induced Cancer clusters near Macfarland and now, the cleft
palate cluster near Kettleman Hills’ Hazardous Waste Facility. Rarely
does the public hear about an Environmental Justice win, without the
associated, demonstrated environmental health tragedy.
