Clean Up Green Up: Why Now?

Hosted by

Three Los Angeles neighborhoods are the target of Clean Up Green Up, legislation passed by the Los Angeles City Council. Boyle Heights, Wilmington and the Sun Valley-Pacoima have long been considered toxic hot spots due to pollution levels from a variety of sources. Warren Olney talks to District Six Councilwoman Nury Martinez and USC's Dr. Manuel Pastor about how the new program will impact businesses and residents and what took so long for it to be enacted.
