Two Toxic Sites: A Parable of Environmental Inequity

Two Toxic Sites: A Parable of Environmental Inequity

In this session, panelists will share their unique experiences with environmental justice issues in South Carolina and discuss how those who are most immediately and hardest hit by pollution and other environmental hazards are often those with the fewest resources to respond. The audiences will also learn about a very clear and stunning example of environmental inequity in Greenville and will be given actionable advice on how to advocate for positive change.

Session goals:

  • Share that contamination from the Bramlett site is ongoing and give actionable tips to advocate for proper cleanup
  • Impart that the most environmentally vulnerable people need to be part of the environmental decision-making process
  • Provide steps on how we can all help improve our state’s regulatory system to ensure environmental protection and justice for all South Carolinians
