Wilson calls for environmental justice legislation

Rally in Annapolis, Maryland,

In a Washington Informer story written by William J Ford, Faculty Associate Sacoby Wilson advocated for passage of certain legislation in the State of Maryland that he said would work toward environmental justice. He noted that Baltimore City has the most heat-related morbidity deaths than any other city in Maryland because of impervious surfaces. He stressed trees help with stormwater management, mental health and property values, Ford reported.

“You can’t have a healthy neighborhood without trees, folks,” Wilson said. “How are you going to put America first if you don’t put your kids first?”
