Breakthrough Communities: Sustainability and Justice in the Next American Metropolis

Author(s): 
Edited by M. Paloma Pavel, PhD, Foreword by Carl Anthony

The emerging metropolitan regional equity movement promotes innovative policies to ensure that all communities in a metropolitan region share resources and opportunities equally. Too often, low-income communities and communities of color bear a disproportionate burden of pollution and lack access to basic infrastructure and job opportunities. The metropolitan regional equity movement -- sometimes referred to as a new civil rights movement -- works for solutions to these problems that take into account entire metropolitan regions: the inner city core, the suburbs, and exurban areas.
