East Boston environmental justice

The Eversource utility is seeking to build a new electrical substation in East Boston, dangerously close to the flood-prone Chelsea Creek, next to 8 million gallons of jet fuel. This is of course a majority Latino immigrant community; a very typical environmental justice problem is the siting of dangerous facilities in the midst of low-income and vulnerable populations. Today, I signed a petition, asking Boston Mayor Marty Walsh to halt the construction. Today, I also signed up for the Boston Rise climate rally next week.
