In the summer of 2018, Nexus Media took part in Freedom to Breathe, a cross-country tour that explored how climate change intersects with the racial, social and economic challenges that Americans face every day. We saw firsthand how fossil fuel pollution and extreme weather are damaging communities across the United States, and how ordinary people are organizing to combat the problem.

In Port Arthur, Texas, community organizer Hilton Kelley has been fighting pollution from refineries for decades. Now he’s helping the community recover from flooding during Hurricane Harvey. Find out more in this video.
