THE ISSUESIncreased Pollution
FCA claim they are doing more than enough but they could reduce facility emissions more with improved air pollution control technology. Existing Public Health Crisis
Residents around FCA have high asthma rates and respiratory illness. Many of the pollutants released may make them more vulnerable to COVID-19. Extreme Public Funding
Nearly 50% of the project is subsidized with public tax abatements.
Resident Demands1. reduce facility emissions with improved air pollution control technology,
2. increase protections for residents through home repairs and filters on public spaces and
3. improve source monitoring.
