The Air We Breathe - Vehicle Pollution and Racial Disparities in Greater Boston

Greater Boston residents of color are more likely to live close to high-polluting roadways. What does that mean for their health?

Join MAPC to learn more about their recently-released research on racial disparities in vehicle pollution proximity and to discuss the public health implications of those disparities. Following a presentation on the research findings, a response panel will discuss how this impacts frontline communities and different strategies for addressing these inequities.

Speakers include:
  • Representative Liz Miranda, MA House of Representatives
  • Professor Madeleine Scammell, Boston University School of Public Health, GreenRoots Board Chair
  • Jordan Stutt, Carbon Programs Director, Acadia Center
  • Conor Gately, MAPC Senior Land Use and Transportation Analyst
