Check out the pollution sources in your neighborhood!

Looking over the data, you can see cities in Southern California that are more directly impacted by these toxic polluters. Long Beach, Carson, San Pedro, Bell, South Gate are all areas that are predominantly people of color. For APIs, Long Beach and Carson are big hubs for Samoan, Chamorro, Tongan, Cambodian, and Laos communities. What are the direct impacts of this toxic air for these community members? Not only does more research need to be done on direct impacts of people of color, but APIs also need to start being included in the fight for a cleaner environment, and for cleaner air.
