Discussion: In the video about environmental justice, the city was proposing to renew the license of a toxic landfil to continue to operate in city limits. The landfill resulted in poor air quality, threatening to residents with chronic lung ailments. City residents advocated for city council meetings to be in both English and Spanish.
