Ever wonder where your power comes from, where your waste goes, or how all of that “stuff” made its way to store shelves? The neighborhood of Sunset Park, Brooklyn, has become a hotbed of community organizing as local residents, mostly young people, have challenged the City and State over the area’s polluting industries. See for yourself what it’s like to live next to the places many people prefer not to think about. Hear firsthand the impacts on the lives and health of residents. Travel the route proposed for a new waterfront bicycle path and hear what youth leaders from UPROSE have to say about it all.
