San Francisco, CA - Green For All Director Vien Truong released the following statement in response to news that President Trump has signed executive orders advancing construction on the Dakota Access and Keystone XL pipelines:
“Donald Trump’s executive orders are evidence that his administration sees people living at the frontlines of pollution and environmental devastation as unimportant.
“For too long, the fossil fuel industry has targeted low-income communities and communities of color for their dirtiest projects. Polluters have seen the human impact of their pollution as collateral damage and our government continues to let them get away with it. We stand with Standing Rock and will continue to stand with indigenous people and all vulnerable communities to ensure these pipelines never see the light of day.”
