Argentine/Turner Good Neighbor Committee and Diesel Health Project at the Argentine Community Center

KCK has very active and effective neighborhood groups, and several of them invited Leticia DeCaigny, leader of the Argentine/Turner Good Neighbor Committee and Diesel Health Project community organizer, and “Green Czar” and Diesel Health Project co-founder Richard Mabion to tell them about our community monitoring project.

We met last night (Tuesday, June 17),  and had a great time.  Leticia and Richard made a very informative presentation on diesel pollution air monitoring in the neighborhoods bordering the BNSF Argentine Rail Yard, and Diesel Health Project volunteers videotaped the event and interviewed community members.

A week from today, on Wednesday June 24, the Good Neighbor Committee, Diesel Health Project and Global Community Monitor will hold a public meeting at the same location to release the final report on our monitoring and what we discovered.  

Stay tuned for more information!
