In a bold stride toward environmental justice, The Bullard Center for Environmental and Climate Justice at Texas Southern University proudly introduces the Elba, AL Shiloh "Highway Robbery" Fact Sheet. Headed by Dr. Robert D. Bullard, the Center's dedicated team has journeyed to the heart of the Shiloh Community, staunchly combating the infrastructure challenges, including flooding, subsidence, and sinking homes and home values, spawned by the expansion of U.S. Highway 84 in 2018.
The Shiloh Community, grappling with there percussions of this expansion, now faces a “double whammy” of persistent flooding issues and the encroachment of a natural gas pipeline perilously close to Pastor Williams' and his neighbors' residences. These distressing stories have reverberated through various news outlets, drawing attention to the community's plight. Yet, all levels of government have been slow to respond—while the community suffers and the residents face the possibility of being washed away and losing their American Dream and their inheritance.
In response to the pressing need for consolidated information, the Bullard Center has curated the Elba, AL Shiloh "Highway Robbery" Fact Sheet. This one-page compendium serves as a comprehensive resource, offering a streamlined access point for concerned citizens to comprehend the profound challenges faced by the Shiloh Community.
