The New Hill community marched in Historic Thousands on Jones Street (HKonJ) Saturday, February 27 in solidarity with Point 10 of the HKonJ Peoples’ Agenda, promoting environmental justice.
New Hill has been a target of environmental racism and is currently fighting the placement of a wastewater treatment plant right next to their historic district and low-income, minority housing. The sewage plant will not serve New Hill.
A big shout out to the N&O’s coverage of the event, especially this photo of the New Hill contingent.
