Los Angeles residents Martin Rubin and Joan Winters founded Concerned Residents Against Airport Pollution in 2003.
I interpret the term “Aviation Justice” literally to mean that all attributes of aviation must be justly considered. How aviation affects the Earth, both in the atmosphere as well as at ground level must be a significant factor in the decision making process at all levels of government; local, state, national and international. Health effects and environmental consequences are just as important as safety considerations. Noise and air pollution impacts must have adequate limits to insure the health and well being to all. Economically, aviation justice implies a well-balanced transportation system that includes investment in a well-coordinated rail system insuring maximum benefits to the traveling public. Concerned Residents Against Airport Pollution joins the Aviation Justice Express to advocate for needed changes.
