Don’t Target Us!
the Little Village community is sick of polluters profiting at our expense.
Thanks to a long and successful fight led by the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization (LVEJO), two polluting coal plants in the Little Village neighborhood of Chicago were forced to shut down.
The neighborhood wants to redevelop the site of the coal plants for the community’s benefit. Instead the old coal plant site is set to become a warehouse and diesel truck hub (for Target), further eroding air quality in the area and adding insult to injury. Read more about the situation here.
