This video is part of a series that the EPA created to commemorate 20 years of work on environmental justice. The series features federal and local government officials, non-profit leaders, and students, who tell stories about the lessons they have learned over their time working on environmental justice. In this video, Edith Pestana shares the story of how a community, the municipality, and the Connecticut Department partnered together to clean up and revitalize a community where illegal dumping caused there to be sidewalks of garbage.
