Barrio Live TJ

On July 8, EHC invites you to join our guided tour of Tijuana for BarrioLive!

Together, we will explore the spirit and struggles of environmental justice in our border region. We will talk with local promotoras, visit Colonia Chilpancingo and learn about major victories in our cross-border communities, including:

  • Alamar River channelization project: The binational Alamar River and the invaluable ecosystem it contains was being paved – we’re working to preserve it. See our progress and imagine the potential.
  • Metales y Derivados: We helped lead the cleanup of 45,000 tons of toxic waste and establish a structure for cross-border collaboration on toxic site cleanups. Visit this site that symbolizes environmental justice achieved.
  • Maquiladoras viewpoint: Maquiladora assembly plants in Colonia Chilpancingo have contaminated the neighborhood and its resources – see them from a new point of view.

To conclude the tour, enjoy a mixer with community members and meet the people who have brought environmental justice to Tijuana for more than 25 years.
