Through toxic tours, CBE increases public awareness of the low-income communities of color that are most directly impacted by multiple sources of toxics and pollution. The tours include visits to oil refineries, ports, metal recycling facilities and other sources that are linked to asthma, birth defects and cancer. You will hear personal stories of local residents struggling to hold industry and government officials accountable for toxic pollution in their neighborhoods.
