Event Type Protest
Organizer/AuthorMarie Harrison
Southeast SF residents continue to suffer disproportionately from a myriad of health impacts triggered by this polluting plant. Rates of cervical and breast cancer are double the rate found in other parts of SF. Furthermore, one in every six children has asthma in Bayview Hunters Point!

Since 1998, the City of SF and PG&E have failed to keep their promises to close this outdated plant. We are demanding that PG&E follow through on the next proposed closure date. Southeast SF residents should not have to bear the burden of toxic exposure in order to generate electricity used by the greater Bay Area. This is environmental racism and it must stop now!
