Roxbury residents work to clean up toxic lot
April 3, 2008
Community Works (CW) recently featured ACE in its seasonal newsletter as a great example of “social justice at work.” The newsletter praised our Massachusetts Environmental Justice Assistance Network (MEJAN) for recently fighting for a brownfield clean-up and development in nearby Highland Park, where residents of Hawthorne have been exposed to contaminants from illegal dumping.
Thanks to MEJAN’s talented attorneys, members of the Hawthorne Area Association are now equipped with a solid plan to stop this injustice and start the process of parcel remediation. We look forward to its safe and timely clean-up and development.
Community Works is a cooperative fundraising effort among community service organizations based in the Boston area. ACE is a proud member organization, and we thank CW for its support. We also hope to make headlines in next season’s newsletter!
