I’m signing this petition because as a person who lives in Chicago I don’t want my city to be used as a trash bin

The communities of SE Chicago have been overly burdened with the costs of industrial pollution and it has a tremendous impact on their health.

This is making me angrt just thinking about it. I am mixed and Indigenous and I live on the south east side of Chicago. We don't need this bill  down here. Leave it where TF it is. Stop killing our people BIPOC.

No citizen of Chicago should have to live next to a business that creates toxic health conditions.

Chicago’s policies here are discriminatory: they have moved this plant to a mainly Latino and poorer area from a whiter and richer one. In the previous area this plant had multiple violations: it is polluting and dangerous.

Inequitable exposure to pollution is textbook environmental racism. Moving the plant to a neighborhood that has less resources to fight back is inexcusable.

General Iron’s decision to move to the Southeast Side is a textbook example of environmental racism. We cannot continue to allow Black and brown communities to be set aside as sacrifice zones. It is unacceptable, and it should not be happening in 2021. Find a better site for General Iron to shred metal.

Thanks for adding your voice.
