A Note About Our Oct. 24 Event, The Complex Politics of Gentrification and Environmental Sacrifice Zones, a Conversation With Dr. Troy Hernandez

Thanks to all who joined us for our discussion with Troy Hernandez on Oct. 24. The views expressed by Dr. Hernandez were his own. The Loundy Human Rights Project does not endorse statements made about Pilsen Alliance, which has presented information contrary to claims made about their accepting funding from a local metal-shredder.

Please join us on December 12 when our student research panel brings back stories of environmental justice battles – and victories – from the Olympic Peninsula and British Columbia!
