Santa Clara County has one of the highest concentrations of toxic sites in the nation. SCU's environmental justice organization, Bronco Leaders of Environmental Justice Investigating Truth (B-LEJIT), hosted a Toxics Tour that educated the participants on why Santa Clara is home to so many toxic sites and what these sites look like today. B-LEJIT researched the history of the Santa Clara Valley, what the land was used for, what the land is used for today, and why these uses have resulted in such a high number of toxic sites. Members of B-LEJIT led a walking tour on Sunday, May 22nd to point out specific sites in the greater SCU area.
