many words, sentences, paragraphs, studies of- STUDIES: statistical analysis reports on and of- REPORTS: have been conducted over and before these many years.
The low-income and now NO-Income areas, that use to be neighborhoods and communities have endured and still suffer tremendous misery from TOXIC HAZARDOUS WASTE: and now they shipped the businesses and manufacturers overseas; or- out of the United States. And we, in Urban America are left with brunt ends of horrific POLLUTION in the water, ground and air; with violence and turmoil like never before.
Life would be unimaginable without being able to PRAY and ask God for mercy and grace: and in a similar spectrum without having our ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE -E.P.A. professional staffers to call on about various problems, projects, questions, intervention possibilities would be inhumane. Thank God, for the Environmental Justice MOVEMENT, though many of our original senior / elder advisers have already crossed-over to other side of the twin mirror of LIFE.
At least our beloved AMERICA is poised to re-grapple the environmental FUTURES with more civility and humanitarian conscience. And may God continue to BLESS our President, his family and our entire nation’s “GREENER TOMORROWS”.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964, is perfect blend to the commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE Executive Order: because we have a CIVIL RIGHT to breathe AIR even if we’re poor and have quality clean WATER, not just because we AMERICANS, but because we are Human BEINGS, with souls- that are ALIVE-

Thank you,
Marvin S. Robinson, II

In 2008, EJ designated the Yakima Valley as a EJ Showcase, one of the top 10 most polluted places in America, then dropped the ball.
We would like EJ here to assist us in the Yakima Valley.

Thank you for keeping eye on Ky, some would wonder why you would even care about this state, because of the lack of respect some of our elected officials have shown to the First African American President, I believe some men have a higher calling. Together we in America are a strong nation, but the middle class need a seat at the table.
