KCK has very active and effective neighborhood groups, and several of them invited Leticia DeCaigny, leader of the Argentine/Turner Good Neighbor Committee and Diesel Health Project community organizer, and “Green Czar” and Diesel Health Project co-founder Richard Mabion to tell them about our community monitoring project.
We met last night (Tuesday, June 17), and had a great time. Leticia and Richard made a very informative presentation on diesel pollution air monitoring in the neighborhoods bordering the BNSF Argentine Rail Yard, and Diesel Health Project volunteers videotaped the event and interviewed community members.
A week from today, on Wednesday June 24, the Good Neighbor Committee, Diesel Health Project and Global Community Monitor will hold a public meeting at the same location to release the final report on our monitoring and what we discovered.
Stay tuned for more information!
