Join PLAN and the Energy Justice Network for this pre-conference event. Environmental racism is rampant in the trash incineration industry. Learn about environmental justice and what environmental looks like nationally, and in a dramatic local example. We’ll take a “toxic tour” of the city of Chester, PA, home to a cluster of major polluters, including the nation’s largest trash incinerator, where much of Philadelphia’s waste is burned.
