Ambient air pollution accounts for an estimated 4.2 million deaths per year due to stroke, heart disease, lung cancer and chronic respiratory diseases. These deaths disproportionately impact minority, lower income and lower education individuals. Please join us to learn about their work on air pollution in Syracuse. A discussion of how this relates to the removal of the elevated portion of I-81 and the community grid will follow.
