Toxic Tourism: A New Itinerary for the Environmental Justice Movement.
Di Chiro, Giovanna
Orion Afield: Working for Nature and Community, v5 n2 p34-37 Spr 2001
Tours of minority group neighborhoods show participants the effects of polluting industries that are disproportionately sited near them. The tours make people aware of this overt environmental racism and inspire them to take action. Such tours must be handled with tact, preferably by the affected communities themselves, to avoid voyeurism and objectification of residents. (TD)
