STOP POLLUTION ON CHICAGO's SOUTHEAST SIDE



The more I and other's dig into systemic racism, the more we know and the more projects like this smack of more of the same. We can make a difference!


FROM THE ILLINOIS ENVIRONMENTAL COUNCIL Jan 14 2021

Did you know a scrap metal shredder prone to explosions, forced to shut down by the city of Chicago multiple times and cited by the U.S. EPA is in the process of moving from Lincoln Park to Chicago’s Southeast side, a neighborhood that is both predominantly Latinx and environmentally overburdened?


It’s a trend too often repeated, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t going to fight it-- and you can too!


General Iron, despite being a known environmental threat, has already received two out of the three permits they need to relocate. Late last year, the city sent them a letter of deficiency requiring them to resubmit their application for the final permit.


Despite opposition from the community, General Iron continues to move toward approval of their final permit. So now is the time to speak, no matter where you’re from, and stand in solidarity with the Southeast side.


Click here by 11:59 PM on Thursday, January 14 to tell the city to keep this dirty polluter out of the Southeast side!


Urge Chicago’s Department of Public Health to block General Iron’s move and help protect the Southeast side’s right to clean air and a clean neighborhood!

Thank you,
