An Earth Day/Earth Month Special!
A Filipino American group called Little Manila Rising is part of a "people-powered" Green Revolution that's changing how the community in Stockton, Calif. gets involved in environmental justice.
Recently, community members, empowered by state money through AB617, rejected a $5 million proposal from the Port of Stockton. The community stood up to the polluters. They were all tired of being dumped on.
LMR's Dillon Delvo tells Emil Guillermo how and why it happened, and how LMR transformed its mission to fight for environmental justice.
