Toxic Communities and the Fight for Clean Air

Massachusetts communities are still recovering from the legacy of polluting power plants: mercury in the air, ash in the water. In this video, we interview Clean Water Action’s allies from campaigns across the state, savvy environmental warriors who have lived through environmental pollution and have scored many victories in moving toward a brighter future. 

But the struggle isn’t over. Waste-to-energy facilities like an ash landfill and incinerator in Saugus, a proposed biomass plant in Springfield, and other dangerous sources of pollution threaten the health and safety of Massachusetts residents. 

We can take our victories to the next level by passing policies to expand clean energy and securing legal commitments to advance environmental justice.

Watch the video to hear more, then take action here. And stay tuned for more updates on our efforts to transition to clean energy and knock out injustice.
