November 17th OUTRAGE Press Event is a Success!

On November 17th, OUTRAGE held a press conference surrounding the release of the Truck Traffic and Air Quality Study to the public. OUTRAGE, community members, city-wide coalitions, elected officials, parents and their children showed up in numbers outside of PS 132 on a cold afternoon to voice their concerns over the burden their neighborhoods face with truck traffic and poor air quality. The press was there to document the release of the report and have continued to follow up with coverage of OUTRAGE since the event. Here is a number of articles written about the study and the event:
