What is a fenceline community? Who lives there? What are their special concerns?
Decatur First UMC will host a series from March to April featuring leading environmental justice advocates in the state. The focus will be on issues faced by fenceline communities -- those that border electric plants, chemical plants, and other industries. Energy, food access, racism, advocacy, and faith will be covered in this series.
The series will start Thursday, March 5 and run every Thursday through April 9 at 7:00 pm. More details can be found on Facebook.
