It would be great if you reposted their stories or atleast focused on what is happening in communities.

Various governmental bodies should step forward to integrate environmental justice.

Any railyard is a red flag for contamination. Plus there is an underground stream. Witness showed up who used to work as stock boy and daily dumped oil waste and other chemical fluids directly in ground where the creek surface after decades through excavation with no permits. Demolition of brick coal bins, old company store and cement and no dust control landed adjacent neighbor in hospital. Vapors from oil base and other chemicals released also made her ill. 3 doctors told city to have me removed from house which was surrounded by this construction project. Politically connected lawyers and elected officials and developers lied about past history of site and no environmental report was done. Right to know was refused. Confessions of illegal removal of top soil followed forced excavation from site. Recently letter surfaced from Senior City Planner stating a conspiracy was engineered against me fro City Council office and aide to District attorney. I am still being treated for all manner of injury and the target of assault, hate crimes, obstruction of justice and threats of jail, looney bin and rape to retaliate against my whistle blowing and cover up the crimes on the site. I have boxes of evidence yet the EPA refuses to investigate even though the crimes are obvious. I’ve not been able to live in my home for 7 years, one cat dead of cancer and other cat and self still ill. The EPA has sided with the political corruption in Philadelphia regarding the Devon project and destroyed my life and harmed my family forever. I was the canary in the coal mine and did all the leg work for you, yet you left me to die and who know what slower long term affects this site will cause residents.

It’s too hard to build this idea. Many countries-worldwide appear its program with the great goal, but empty progress. However, by Federal Agencies progress, I am sure this goal could be success. Amen……!!!!!
