Toxic Trespass Training for MS Gulf Coast Residents

Updated: Aug 6



The residents of Cherokee subdivision in Pascagoula have an elevated risk of cancer, 2 to 3x more than what the EPA says is acceptable. Our community has been organizing to address the health impacts of industrial pollution. We are holding a community training open to anyone interested in learning more about the connection between industrial pollutants and human health.


The training will focus primarily on the industries in Pascagoula but is applicable to any community facing oil-chemical contamination. It was designed by the Alert Project in partnership with fenceline communities along the Gulf Coast.


Participants will learn how to:


  • Identify types of oil-chemical hazards in the environment and explain how exposures occur

  • Explain how these exposures affect health

  • Recognize symptoms of chemical illness related to oil-chemical exposures

  • Be able to describe them to a doctor or health care provider

  • Identify ways to reduce oil-chemical exposures in your environment
