    Daniel Faber is director of the Northeastern University Environmental Justice Research Collaborative. He’s crunched some numbers and according to his findings,Chelsea is one of the most environmentally overburdened places in the state.

    “Communities that lack the political, economic power to defend themselves, where residents work longer hours, and they have less resources and are less educated, those are the communities that are often targeted for the siting of some of the most dangerous or ecologically hazardous facilities,” Faber said.
