Discuss the political movements and strategies used by Boston residents to improve their living situations? Consider opportunities and the environment in terms of the reasons for social action and the outcomes. Consider the impact on the environment of some of the proposed and actual changes to Boston described in the readings. Do you see evidence of what Gottdeiner et al. term “environmental racism”? In other words, what kinds of factors contribute to the ability to prevent or avoid environmental degradation or unhealthy change in a particular neighborhood? Consider Boston and environs in terms of negative impacts on the livability and the impact on less powerful residents. Compare these circumstances to your own residential area.The assignment should be a minimum of two to three pages with appropriate references. Use material from current events, the Vrabel readings and key concepts from Gottdiener , Budd., & Lehtovuori.
