The Fight for Environmental Justice in Michigan
Description: Environmental justice activists and organizations in Detroit have been tackling environmental racism for decades, with national and local awareness increasing in the past several years due to the Flint water crisis. Several environmental justice leaders featured in the MLIVE documentary serve as members of, and make substantial contributions to, the work of the M-LEEaD Center. M-LEEaD has also partnered with many of these organizations to work together to address pressing environmental injustices in Southwest Detroit. Michelle Martinez from the Michigan Environmental Justice Coalition serves as a member of M-LEEaD’s Stakeholder Advocacy Board and is featured in the documentary. MEJC’s focus on air pollution and climate change is featured powerfully in the documentary.
