CALL TO ACTION: SIGN THIS LETTER
Last August, Southern Sector Rising released a letter with over 30 co-signers demanding the clean-up of Shingle Mountain. That Clean-up is now underway. Today, SSR is seeking organizations to sign on to THIS letter, describing four ways Dallas City Hall can make sure another Shingle Mountain doesn’t happen: New Leadership, New Zoning, New Economic Development Policies and New Institutions. We need your group, neighborhood association, church/temple/synagogue to sign on ASAP. Let SSR know you support this robust Dallas Environmental Justice platform at this FB page or email address: email@example.com.
Southern Sector Rising seeks to offer the marginalized residents of Dallas health equity by ending decades of racist zoning, forcing industrial polluters out of predominantly Black and Brown residential neighborhoods, and by more evenly distributing the pollution burdens of our city.

We understand the words of Audre Lorde to be true: “There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle, because we don’t live single-issue lives.” Environmental racism is just one strand of a braid, and ending systemic oppression is only possible by confronting it as a united force.
