Join us for our Toxic Tour of Dudley Square and learn about the history of environmental justice in our home neighborhood. Toxic Tours are great for students, teachers, community organizations, faith-based groups, public health professionals and anyone interested in EJ organizing.
"The electroplating factory and piles of rubble were obvious health risks to students at the nearby middle schools and daycare, yet the management of the factory and construction agency did nothing to help or warn the population...I could not believe that somebody could care so little about the safety of a large population.
The other specific moment that impacted me the most was when [ACE staff] asked us if those events outlined above could happen in the places where we live. That moment was the first time I fully realized how real environmental racism is."

Tours usually last about two hours and we are happy to work with your group's specific needs. In exchange, we ask for a sliding scale honorarium to support this work. See more details and contact us to schedule a tour.
