Detailed Information:
Example of one publication: L.A.`s Lethal Air offers an innovative analysis of the urban ecological catastrophe. Los Angeles is a first and third world city, the majority of whose residents are low-income workers, mostly of color, and it is the largest industrial and auto-dependent city in the U.S. L.A.`s Lethal Air, first written to help galvanize L.A.`s multiracial environmental justice organization, the WATCHDOG, synthesizes environmental health, urban politics, and organizing strategy, and offers a powerful antidote to the toxic nostrums of market-based and corporate dominated environmentalism. It advocates a two-pronged clean air plan of toxic use elimination in major industry and a mass transit system focusing on zero emission vehicles--driven by a long-term movement led by workers, low-income people, women, and people of color.
