Please join The FANG Collective, Environmental Justice League of RI along with area residents and other community and environmental organizations to bring attention to the 100 million dollar, fracked, liquefied natural gas compressor station National Grid is trying to build in South Providence. This is a clear example of environmental racism as all 11 of the EPA’s identified toxic polluters in Providence are already in this zip code, which is predominantly low-income people of color. The impact and dangers of this project are enormous and have been outlined by the EJ League in detail here.
Whether you already stand in opposition to this project and would like to bring attention to its dangers or would like to find out more about the project and its implications on our city and state, PLEASE join us Wednesday between 4pm-6pm at the entrance to the facility on the corner of Allens Ave and Terminal Rd.
