Still Toxic After All These Years: Air Quality and Environmental Justice in the San Francisco Bay Area

According to Still Toxic After All These Years: Air Quality and Environmental Justice in the San Francisco Bay Area (24 pages, PDF), two-thirds of residents who live within one mile of an EPA toxic release inventory facility are people of color, while nearly two-thirds who live more than two-and-a-half miles away are white. Funded by the California Endowment and the San Francisco, California Wellness, and W.K. Kellogg foundations, the report from the Center for Justice, Tolerance & Community calls for a comprehensive approach to environmental justice policy.
