Recent Coverage: Youth March & EPA Announcement

The situation with high pollution levels in Pilsen has been making the news quite a lot in recent days thanks to the work of Pilsen youth who marched against pollution (leading an “Anti-Pollution Revolution”) and the U.S. EPA’s announcement that it is proposing that central Pilsen be declaired a non-attainment area for lead (that the lead-air levels exceed legal limits).

Great job to the students in Pilsen, particularly from the Lozano Leadership Academy. Below is some of the media coverage:
