The Minnesota Frontline Community Protection Coalition (FCP Coalition)—led by COPAL MN, the MN Environmental Justice Table, and allies—was formed to address Minnesota’s broken environmental regulatory process that ignores the disproportionate pollution of Black, Indigenous, and other frontline communities.
The coalition has been working for more than 3 years to address this issue across Minnesota by organizing impacted communities and concerned allies and pushing for a cumulative impacts bill in the state legislature.
East Phillips community members have fought long and hard to ensure their right to a healthy environment and a solution to the climate emergency. Now the City is finally beginning to concede to their demands and make commitments around limiting more pollution. The City’s commitments must be vetted by independent experts, and community members must have the time to review and inform them.
Yet the City is demanding an agreement by June 30th.
Will you stand with the community in the fight for environmental justice by demanding the City allow more time to come to an agreement?
