EPA Adds Prison Locations to Its Environmental Justice Mapping Tool 21.9.2017 Truthout - All Articles
(Photo: Chris Salvo / The Image Bank / Getty Images) This story is the seventh piece in "America's Toxic Prisons," an investigative, collaborative series between Truthout and Earth Island Journal. This series dives deeply into the intersection between mass incarceration and environmental justice. As an environmental reporter, it's not every day that I get to communicate good news -- the state of our environment often feels pretty bleak. But today, at least, there is a victory to celebrate: Thanks to the persistence of a small group of prison ecology advocates, the support of their allies, and the assistance of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), prisoners' rights and environmental justice advocates have a new tool to add to their activist arsenal.

When Jane Horton bought her dream 800-square-foot farmhouse in 1975, she thought little of the semiconductor manufacturing plant across the street. Even after the company's buildings were demolished and a chain-link fence went up around the campus, she still had no knowledge of the toxic dangers lurking beneath her feet -- let alone of the fact that they were invading her home.
