And Justice for All
NAACP’s Theodore Carrington chats about an environmental-justice tour
After seven days of community visits around the country, the Environmental Justice for All Tour wrapped up in Washington, D.C., last week. It was intended to draw attention to the need for, well, environmental justice for all — including those who live near huge toxic spills, home-shaking dynamite blasts, and a snow-tainting plant that makes the red dye used in M&M’s. Tour participant Theodore Carrington of the New Jersey NAACP chats with Grist’s Kate Sheppard about being heard and learning to listen.
