Peril and Promise

Freedom to Breathe Ep. 1: Social Justice is Climate Justice

Season 2019 Episode 1 | 5m 43s

For residents of the Texan city of Port Arthur, living next to the country's largest oil refinery has imposed severe health impacts onto the majority Black/Latino community. This is only one example of environmental racism that low-income communities of color face. For residents in the area, they are not just fighting climate change, they're fighting for their "Freedom to Breathe."
