    Health Learn About Local Environmental Justice Concerns
    Who is most affected by environmental degration and/or environmental irresponsiblity in your community? How are they affected?

    Jaya Belyeu 11/08/2019 9:47 PM
    Everyone is affected, honestly. Currently, there are very large wind turbines being build in my community. I have seen many of the community members suffer from the effects of the wind turbine being so close. Many of the community members have been arrested protesting. The native bats are also being affected because the wind turbines are killing them.

    First of all, I got to get rid of all the stuff I don't need. I love seeing that others wanted things that I didn't want and it always makes me happy to make others happy. another positive outcome was me being able to meet and socialize with my neighbors. I was able to get to know them and see how they are doing.
