S2 E3: Respect Your Elders Part II with Marsha Jackson

Marsha Jackson is the co-chair of Southern Sector Rising, a nonprofit environmental justice organization based in Dallas, TX. Founded to get rid of Shingle Mountain, an illegal dump in a southern Dallas community, SSR’s mission is to offer marginalized residents health equity by ending decades of racist zoning, forcing industrial polluters out of Black and Brown neighborhoods, and by more evenly distributing the pollution burdens of our city. Thanks to Marsha and SSR’s years of unrelenting advocacy, Single Mountain was eventually moved. But they’re just beginning the fight for environmental justice.
