The lead contaminated water crisis in Flint, Michigan has highlighted the
issue of environmental injustice and who bears the burden of toxic chemical
exposures in the U.S. Childhood lead poisoning has been a problem for
decades, including in Massachusetts, and occurs more frequently in low
income communities and communities of color. Other New England communities,
such as New Bedford and Pittsfield, MA are also the locations of
contaminated industrial waste dumping that has put them on the Federal
Superfund list. Dr. Richard Clapp will discuss local issues of
environmental justice and answer your questions.
