Pope Francis addressed 300 participants in a meeting organized by the Foundation for Sustainable Development titled: “Environmental justice and climate change," yesterday. The event was attended by key figures in religion, politics, economic activity and various sectors of scientific research, as well as several international organizations and individuals involved in the fight against poverty.
Environmental Justice is important! “Environmental Justice” was an image created by Ricardo Levins Morales for the Northland Poster Collective. Although the Northland Poster Collective has closed its doors, Morales continues the fight on his own website dedicated to social justice art (http://www.rlmarts.com/).

Now it’s time for strong action to back up those words by strengthening its regulation of toxic air from oil refineries to protect communities, especially children.
