Fresh Voices 

2022-2023 Cohort

A Closer Look at the East Palestine Train Derailment and the Moody Landfill Fire

For our team project, the 2022-2023 cohort of Fresh Voices chose to focus on two incidents with major air quality implications that took place close to the two Fresh Voices locations, Pittsburgh, PA & Birmingham, AL, during the winter of this program year. By diving into different aspects of the incidents and sharing their findings, we hope to clarify what happened, how residents and government agencies responded, and how to prevent future crises.
