Register at www.chesterresidents.org/meeting
Thursday, Oct. 29th at 7pm on ZoomChester Residents Concerned for Quality Living (CRCQL- "circle") is hosting a campaign launch meeting on Thursday, Oct. 29, 2020 at 7pm on Zoom to discuss the Chester environmental justice movement and campaign to end trash incineration at the Covanta facility, the largest incinerator in the nation. In this introduction meeting, learn about the Covanta trash incinerator on the Chester waterfront and health impacts, our campaign and how you can help. Listen to what groups in neighboring cities are doing to fight off trash incineration and demand clean air in their communities. Learn how we are promoting job opportunities in Zero Waste and developing long-term solutions to waste management in the county. Black communities are the most impacted by COVID-19 and incinerator pollution is making the problem worse. Incineration and air pollution are directly related to issues of racism, health problems, like cancer and asthma, and climate change. Chester is being dumped on by trash from NYC, New Jersey and Philadelphia- and as far as Connecticut and North Carolina. The people of Chester are paying for the trash problems of the region with their lives.
Let’s stand up together to stop toxic incineration and environmental racism in Chester!
