As local officials and advocates pursue the goal of restoring the Malden River for greater public use, a new initiative seeks to ensure that nearby residents can take part.

The Tri-City Community Action Program recently hired an environmental justice organizer to lead an outreach effort aimed at engaging low-income, immigrant, and minority populations from neighborhoods close to the river in the effort to make it a more positive presence in their lives…

“Environmental justice is not just about the cleanliness of the river, it’s about what happens once the river is clean”  Feinberg said.
