Sound Rivers Featured on New Podcast


Sound Rivers is featured on a new podcast! Episode 1 of The Dirt features Pastor Sylvester Williams and Chandra Taylor of the Southern Environmental Law Center (SELC) relaying the story of the East End community in Durham, North Carolina. A neighborhood comprised mostly of elderly people of color is seeking justice as construction of a new highway tears up the community and threatens longtime residents with displacement and pollution. Host Brian Powell also speaks with the NC Environmental Justice Network’s Elsie Herring and Waterkeeper Alliance’s Will Hendrick about the impact industrial hog operations have on communities of color in eastern NC. This episode also features a panel of policy experts from NC Sierra Club, SELC, and Sound Rivers discussing the latest environmental news out of the NC state legislature.
