Field Trip 2011

31 March – 2 April 2011 – Geography 430 will embark on a field trip to the refineries, shipyards, and incinerators along the Texas Gulf.  Fenceline communities are the sacrifice zones where communities experience chronic air pollution, water pollution and chemical exposure.  We will visit these communities hidden between belching refineries and industrial chemical production. We will engage residents and community activists about their struggle with environmental agencies and industrial polluters. We will document and witness how they are coping with unseen yet toxic exposures where the live, work and play.
