(2006) MAJORA CARTER founder & executive director, SUSTAINABLE SOUTH BRONX. UNSPECIFIED.
Sustainable South Bronx (SSB) is a community-based organization created in 2001 to implement sustainable development projects for the South Bronx informed by community needs and values of environmental justice. A long history of racial and class discrimination in land use decisions and housing has located the worst polluting waste transfer stations, truck-dependent warehouses, and highways in the neighborhood. Inspired by the potential of creating environmentally safe spaces in the South Bronx, SSB addresses concerns in areas such as transportation, energy, water, waste and land use and provides neighborhood groups with information and skills to ensure informed participation and maintain community control.
