Environmental Justice in New Haven
Join Dr. Mark Mitchell, founder and President of the Connecticut Coalition for Environmental Justice, as he talks about the recent environmental justice issues that have affected New Haven and Connecticut. Dr. Mitchell will be speaking about the Coalition's 2004 legal victory to prevent the restarting of the English Station Power Plant in Fair Haven, and current pollution reduction agreements for the three new PSEG peaking plants at Harbor Station. He will also address the implications of the new Environmental Justice Law passed by the Connecticut Legislature in 2008. A non-pizza lunch will be provided.
