Rothko Chapel Presents, Offsite Program: “Toxic Tour” of Houston with t.e.j.a.s.
Juan Parras and Yvette Arellano of Texas Environmental Justice Advocacy Services (t.e.j.a.s.) will lead a tour addressing toxic sites in and around the greater Houston community.
t.e.j.a.s. originated the toxic tour over 20 years ago in Houston as an educational tool for individuals within and outside of the community to gain a further understanding of environmental justice issues. Pictures cannot easily convey the surreal site of this massive industrial complex, nor the thick polluted air. Join us on a tour through the East End of Houston, where some of the largest refineries and chemical plants surround neighborhoods and spew toxins into the air. Thousands of people live, work, and attend schools in the shadow of these facilities.
Come mingle with Healthcare for All Texas members, newbies welcome!
