Today Environmental Health News (EHN) begins a three-week series, Pollution, Poverty and People of Color. They will be examining the long-discussed, rarely-addressed issues of environmental justice in urban and rural communities across America.
Today's story focuses on the refineries and close-in neighborhoods of Richmond, California. The Bay Area city of 103,000 is ringed by five oil refineries, three chemical factories, eight Superfund sites and more.
