Fighting environmental racism by supporting participation in Providence, Rhode Island

Audrey Irvine-Broque

Grassroots group No LNG in PVD knows that some common organizing practices must be changed in order to fight environmental racism in their community. Recognizing the barriers to the political process that exist in this neighborhood, they use community education, canvassing, childcare, translation, and legal support to ensure that the community of South Providence has the power to fight this facility.
