PennPIRG, a statewide consumer group, is planning a press event this
Thursday, August 8th, at 11 AM at the Pittsburgh Amtrak Station (near
Liberty Ave. and 11th St.) to discuss Pittsburgh and toxic pollution.
As Pittsburghers, we are nestled between two large chemical plants in
Mars and Bunola; these plants threaten a combined 885,000 people. We are
calling on Gina McCarthy and her EPA to implement stricter
transportation and safety requirements to protect our neighborhoods here
and across the country.
We've got some great speakers lined up including a local affected
resident from Point Breeze and a member of the Learning Disabilities
Association of America.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at 412-421-7978.
