Environmental and Social Justice Art: Stopping a Power Plant
Updated: Mar 24, 2021
Prince George's County, Maryland already has four power plants. Residents joined together in the past year to Just Say No! to a fifth. Friends of the Earth writes about it here.
It was a triumph for a band of "accidental" activists who got fed up with what happens when communities don't exercise their collective clout. The pollution from power plants is well documented and Prince George's neighbors have had just about enough.
NO MATTAWOMAN POWER PLANT!
On the first day of the 2020 Maryland legislative session, Southern Prince Georges County environmental activists showed their resolve in demanding Environmental Justice. They were there to urge our governor Hogan and our state representatives unite with our community and work for NO MATTAWOMAN POWER PLANT!
I enjoyed working with the community to reflect their views with powerful visual messages.
