Grist Magazine interviews Sustainable South Bronx leader Majora Carter:

I realized that to reach and inspire my community on these issues, we needed to do more than just block the bad stuff. We needed projects that our neighbors could see and touch and be proud of. We needed projects that improve their quality of life, that make community members active and connected to each other -- like a park. I began to wonder, "How are people using their waterfront?" I said, "Instead of just getting garbage facilities and power plants, low-income communities of color should get parks and greenways like everybody else."
