On Wednesday night I was proud to join hundreds of residents from River Rouge and other Michigan communities in speaking out for cleaner air in Detroit. For decades, the residents of River Rouge and surrounding communities have been living with severe air pollution from nearby coal plants, and together, they came out in force to pack a public hearing and call on the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality to put a plan in place that will finally clean up this pollution, and correct a longstanding environmental injustice.

This is a MCK- hosted group; if you are not a Motor City Kossack, you are still welcome to jump in and join us! This week's readings: Chapter 6 "Forget about Your Inalienable Right to Work": Responses to Industrial Decline and Discrimination and a recap of Part Two "Rust" I struggled with the reading last week, but this week, Chapter 6 pulled it all together for me. Rather than just seeing disparate strings of data and anecdotes, Chapter 6 wove together the various threads, and a tapestry is unfolding; a tapestry that shows not just the history of deindustrialization in Detroit, but a picture of what could happen again if a new approach is not tried.
