Environmental Racism, Power and Justice in North Lawndale

Wednesday, December 5 @ 6:00pm – 7:30pm
Lawndale Christian Health Center Skyline Conference Center 3750 W Ogden Avenue, 4th Floor 60623 Chicago , IL

For nearly 10 years, a mountain of debris loomed over North Lawndale. Today it still casts a long shadow. On December 5th, join WBEZ for public conversation with The City - an investigative podcast from USA TODAY - that explores how power works in urban America.

Season 1 of this groundbreaking show tells the story of a six-story illegal dump built by the mob on Chicago’s West Side, and explores the corruption, racism, and power plays that allowed it to exist. We’ll take you behind the scenes of The City with host Robin Amer, and the Chicago residents who fought for their neighborhood. You’ll hear their empowering stories and learn what environmental justice looks like for North Lawndale and communities around the country.

Don’t miss this live community event hosted by WBEZ’s own Alden Loury.
