On this episode of The Edit, we spoke with Pacific Standard contributing writer Sophie Yeo about a predominantly immigrant community in Chicago that has long dealt with harmful air pollutants, how litigation is being used to hold governments accountable for their role in climate change, and the future of seeking climate justice as a human right.

Yeo has been writing pieces for our New Landscapes series over the past few months. This series investigates how environmental policies affect vulnerable communities across America. You can find more stories of hers here.
