The Alliance for a Greener South Loop is participating in “Shared Air/Shared Action” a new, EPA-funded project to monitor air quality in four Chicago neighborhoods (the other 3: Little Village, East Side, Riverdale).
This project will help us understand how the air we breathe in the South Loop compares to air in communities that have a history of air pollution and environmental justice issues. We will be doing outreach to educate folks about air quality issues and engage them by using volunteer citizen scientists to monitor air quality.
It is a great opportunity to build connections to people and communities around common environmental issues. We can join our voice with others to bring attention to problems and together explore plans and policies that can help address them.
To help get the work done, we are hiring a community liaison/organizer.
