The dangers of soot air pollution will be discussed during a Detroit community meeting.

Doctors, environmental groups, community advocates and city residents are expected to attend Tuesday night's event at the Detroit Hispanic Development Corp. The sponsors include Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice, Consortium of Hispanic Agencies, Sierra Club, the Green Door Initiative and other groups.

Organizers say comments will be shared with the Environmental Protection Agency to encourage stronger health protections on air quality.

Soot from power plants, industrial processes, automobile and diesel engine exhaust, and wood burning has been linked to a variety of health problems.
