Greenaction and the Bayview Hunters Point Mothers and Fathers Committee, along with our many community partners, invite you to join us Tuesday, 11:30 am for a community press conference and “speak out” to call for an end to pollution, environmental racism and displacement. If you cannot join in person, you can listen and watch a livestream of the event on Greenaction’s Facebook page.
The car caravan protest that was originally planned is now postponed due to the extremely unhealthy air due to wildfires throughout the region.
Bayview Hunters Point Residents to tell Mayor Breed & City Hall: We Can’t Breathe! Pollution & Covid-19 & Wildfire Smoke & Climate Catastrophe& Corruption & Racism Harm the Health of Bayview Hunters Point Residents!
Press conference: Tuesday, September 1, 2020 @ 11:30 am
Martin Luther King/Bay View Park, 3rd and Carroll, San Francisco
Bayview Hunters Point residents will speak out at a press conference Tuesday, September 1st at 11:30 am to send Mayor London Breed and the Board of Supervisors a clear message that City Hall must stop systemic environmental racism, pollution and displacement that are every bit as deadly as police shootings of George Floyd and so many other unarmed black people.
Residents will specifically demand that City Hall and other government agencies:
Clean up radioactive and toxic waste at the Hunters Point Shipyard Superfund Site and other contaminated areas in the community, and Stop upscale developments that would pollute and displace people of color, including Lennar’s Shipyard development and the India Basin Mixed Use Development.
Please note: Car Caravan Protest that had been planned is postponed to a later date due to the unhealthy air quality from the wildfires.
