What the ….?
(CNSNews.com) – The Environmental Protection Agency is spending $1.2 million in taxpayer money to groom the next generation of community organizers and activists, including some who work in nail salons.
The grant money is going to 50 non-profit and tribal organizations that are working to “advance environmental justice at the local level.”
For example, a non-profit group in Westminster, Calif., will use its share of the $1.2 million to create a “healthy and safe environment” in nail salons.
“The project will educate health providers, regulators, salon owners and technicians, and community leaders about safe practices and health impacts associated with exposure to chemicals in salon products.” Activities include “community outreach,” as do many of the projects.
