Region 2 TCTAC's Shepard speaks to media about report showing pollution inequality in New York

The Guardian, New York Times, and Harlem World spoke to Peggy Shepard, exeuctive director of Region 2 TCTAC WE ACT, about a report published by the mayor’s office of environmental justice that shows nearly half of all New Yorkers live in areas with “disproportionate” burdens from pollution. The report is the city’s first comprehensive survey of environmental inequalities. “It [the report] ensures that environmental justice is on the city’s agenda. The next stage is developing a comprehensive, city-wide plan to address the environmental justice issues identified in the report, and engaging with those most impacted to develop effective and equitable solutions,” Shepard said. Yahoo! News shared the Guardian report.
