Marathon for Justice


"Marathon for Justice" tells the story of past and present environmental inequalities in the United States, and explores some of the ways in which people of color have been disproportionately exposed to toxic chemicals and poisonous releases in the air, on the land, and in the water. The film introduces us to communities around the country who have experienced the detrimental effects of pollution, contamination and the degradation of their lands, and shows how these citizens are mobilizing in the long race for justice.
