Zona Abierta: From Coal to Diesel in Little Village

Since the Crawford coal plant closed in 2012, LVEJO has listened to community leaders and advocated for a just transition of the site. However, Hilco Redevelopment Partners recently acquired the site, with plans for a diesel intensive logistics facility. Join us for an interactive discussion with LVEJO community organizers, Nancy Meza & Lilian Molina, about the risks this large facility could pose for the community.
