Dallas Ecological Devestation Tour

November 26 , 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

On November 26, 2019, the Texas Poor People’s Campaign in partnership with the Climate Reality Project Dallas Fort Worth Chapter will host a Dallas Ecological Devastation Tour.

The bus tour will visit five sites of environmental contamination in impoverished communities in Dallas. The tour will include stops at the Lane Plating Site, where toxic chemicals polluted the soil and contaminated nearby creeks; Sand Branch, a community without access to a municipal water source; Joppa (aka Joppee) where air pollution creates a constant health hazard to residents; the now infamous Shingle Mountain, and an area of West Dallas where a lead smelter plant contaminated the ground and air until it was forced to close in 1984.

The demographics of the population living near these locations show how environmental contamination intersects with racial, economic, and other forms of inequality and injustice. The tour will depart from Holy Cross Catholic Church, 4910 Bonnie View Road, Dallas 75241 at 9 a. m. and return at 3 p. m.

Following the tour, there will be a public teach-in starting at 4 pm at Pan-African Connection, 4466 S Marsalis Avenue, Dallas, TX 75216. Representatives of the Poor People’s Campaign will present their demands for action, and there will be an opportunity for public input and discussion.
