WASHINGTON HEIGHTS — A South Side pastor along with other faith and community leaders will discuss a Clean Power Plan by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency at a weekend community meeting.
The public meeting will run from noon-2 p.m. Saturday at Trinity United Church of Christ, 400 W. 95th St., and free refreshments and informational pamphlets about the environment will be available.
The Rev. Otis Moss III, pastor of the church, said he is urging local elected officials to take strong leadership in implementing this plan.
“The burden of climate change and decades of dangerous pollution has fallen on our city’s most vulnerable communities. That is why we stand up and applaud President Obama for taking action to address climate change,” Moss said. “It is our moral obligation to fight this injustice and inequality by cutting pollution and bringing good, clean energy jobs to every community in our state."
