Roxxanne O’Brien: Community voices must be included in the redevelopment of the former Northern Metal Recycling site in north Minneapolis.

North Minneapolis mother and community organizer Roxxanne O’Brien says years of environmental injustice can only be addressed by bringing community members to the table. The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, she says, needs to include the public as it decides what to do with the Northern Metal Recycling site, which polluted the area for years.
