Environmental Justice Advocacy that directly benefis towns in or within the boundaries of the Delaware River Basin and the Delaware River Watershed: Camden, NJ, Chester and Philadelphia, PA. The primary focus of activities in this neighborhood are advocacy that results in reducing toxic emissions from industrial facilities that pollute the air, water and soil. Of course, these polluters are causing serious air polluting problems for the city as whole and this neighborhood in particular. Specifically, of the twenty-two polluters in the Waterfront neighborhood, many are located near the Camden shoreline where toxic run-off into the Delaware River is a serious and continuing problem. In addition, there are two major Superfund sites in this one neighborhood that continue to affect ground water and cause storm water run-off issues as well. Camden is New Jersey’s most environmentally degraded city.
The fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies.
