S1 Ep 36: Environmental Racism at Union Hill, VA w/ Tim Guinee & Pastor Paul Wilson

 Environmental racism is playing out in Union Hill, a predominately African-American community in rural Virginia founded by freed slaves. One of the largest monopoly utilities in the country and corporate donors in Virginia politics is helping run a campaign of disinformation in order to build a massive polluting gas compressor station in the heart of the community as part of the massive Atlantic Coast Pipeline project. We are joined by the actor and activist, Tim Guinee, as well as Pastor Paul Wilson, a leader of the #WeAreAlllUnionHill coalition, to break down environmental justice, transitioning off fossil fuels, holding elected officials accountable, and protecting the health and heritage of Union Hill and other communities around the country. Rev. Lennox Yearwood Jr. hosts along with co-hosts, Mustafa Santiago Ali and Antonique Smith. Recorded live for radio, the episode opens with current events in the climate movement.
