Environmental Justice in the Port of Providence Community Forum

The Environmental Justice League of Rhode Island is hosting a community forum on the Port of Providence, one of the city’s most environmentally compromised sites. It already affects the health and safety of people who live and work nearby, and it’s vulnerable to projected consequences of climate change like sea level rise and storm surges.

The EJLRI says, “This will be our first event focusing on the Port of Providence. Panelists will be asked to address the history of pollution in the port, existing facilities and the hazardous materials stored at the location, potential health impacts, and efforts residents can make to keep themselves and their community safe.
