Join Fore River Residents Against the Compressor Station (FRRACS) for an Open House at the Leventhal Map and Education Center in the Boston Public Library’s Central Branch in Copley Square. Hear from residents of the Fore River Basin, on the South Shore of greater Boston, about their ongoing 7 1/2 year fight against Enbridge’s Weymouth Compressor Station. This Compressor Station, the only one in the United States to be located in a densely populated coastal area, poses a serious threat to the health, safety, environment, and economy of Greater Boston’s South Shore, and is sited adjacent to three Environmental Justice communities.
Folks can explore the Leventhal Center exhibit in which FRRACS is featured, titled: More or Less in Common: Environment and Justice in the Human Landscape. The exhibit also includes the stories of many other fights for environmental justice and the differences in environmental and social outcomes in different communities around the world, based on wealth, class, and race. The exhibit lets folks think critically about the environmental movement and relationship with environmental justice.
Registration is encouraged, though not required. For event reminders, please register.
FRRACS is a community-based group for residents of Weymouth, Quincy, & Braintree, MA who are concerned about the Enbridge compressor station. Learn more at www.nocompressor.com
