Environmental degradation, including the effects of climate change, disproportionately harms disadvantaged communities, especially communities of color. QCAN is committed to fighting for these communities’ right to a safe and healthy environment and to making our organization as inclusive as possible.
Quincy has two environmental justice communities: Germantown and Quincy Point. QCAN supports action, including state legislation, that empowers these communities and gives them a voice in local environmental decisions. We also stand with Fore River Residents Against the Compressor Station and the City of Quincy in defending our EJ communities against the harm posed by the Weymouth compressor station.
