    I can't help but bringing in research here, since promoting energy justice is my main "project" these days...this week an article came out called "Breathing while Black." It is a shorten discussion of 36 page report by the NAACP called "Fumes Across the Fence-Line" released this month. A quick summary is that African-Americans are exposed to air that’s nearly 40 percent more polluted than their white counterparts. They’re also at least 75 percent more likely than other Americans to live in fence-line communities that border oil and natural gas refineries. The first case study in the NAACP report is the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (see page 7). The Southern Environmental Law Center also has a helpful digital report called Path of the Pipeline on the community impacts of the ACP.

    A very walkable day...particularly at 5pm tonight on my way to the INTC Commons.

    So great to see all the familiar names among participants...can we all invite some folks we might not expect to see here? I love that nearly 200 of us are engaged...can we get another 200?
