Environmental activist Joy Towels Ezell, founder of Help Our Polluted Environment (HOPE) is in Pensacola this week. During her visit, Ezell will share her experiences with Wedgewood area residents, who are fighting to clean up or shut down several polluted landfills in their communities.
The public talk will be held at the Marie Young Community Center , 6405 Wagner Road, beginning at 6 p.m.
Like many others on the front lines of the battle for environmental justice, Ezell has a personal story to tell. It all began more than 60 years ago, when she was just a little girl.
