Toxic Wastes and Race at Twenty

The United Church of Christ has just released its new report on environmental racism in the United States, “Toxic Wastes and Race at Twenty: 1987-2007.”

There are several versions of the report that can be downloaded in PDF form here.

The UCC reports that people of color make up a majority of those who live within 3 kilometers of American toxic waste sites. As we begin the new semester, this is certainly something worth teaching to our students.
