Richmond youth earns David Brower award for activism http://kalw.org/post/richmond-youth-earns-david-brower-award-activism <p><em>The city of Richmond is notorious for its high crime rate and industrial pollution. And the Iron Triangle neighborhood &ndash; which is bordered on three sides by train tracks &ndash; just might be the city&rsquo;s most dangerous neighborhood.
