Pilsen Environmental Rights and Reform Organization
PERRO stands for Pilsen Environmental Rights and Reform Organization. It is a grassroots community group of Pilsen residents that formed in 2004 to fight the disproportionate amount of pollution in the Pilsen neighborhood.

Its mission is to spread awareness about this concept of environmental justice and make Pilsen a healthier place to live, work, and raise children.
