Who’s In Danger? Report
A report from the Environmental Justice Health Alliance for Chemical Policy Reform (co-sponsored by Coming Clean and the Center for Effective Government).
Who's in Danger? A Demographic Analysis of Chemical Disaster Vulnerability Zones presents new research showing that residents of chemical facility "vulnerability zones" are disproportionately African American or Latino, have higher rates of poverty than the U.S. as a whole, and have lower housing values, incomes, and education levels than the national average. The disproportionate or unequal danger is sharply magnified in the "fenceline" areas nearest the facilities.
