Community Action Against FreshDirect
Join residents, faith leaders, organizations and friends/allies for a community action on Harlem River Yards against the proposed relocation of FreshDirect to the South Bronx. Gather at Brook Park at noon to join in a march to Harlem River Yards for an interfaith reflection on the industrial facilities, waste transfer stations and trucking operations oversaturating the South Bronx and causing asthma rates eight times the national average. Participants will then have the option to plant sunflowers, renowned for detoxifying soil, along the brownfield waterfront.
Brook Park | 141 St/Brook Ave | 12-1 pm | Assemble at Brook Park and march to Harlem River Yards.
Harlem River Yards| 1-2 pm | Interfaith reflection on environmental injustice in the South Bronx and option to plant sunflowers to detoxify soil.
