ENVIRONMENTAL & CLIMATE JUSTICE
Pollution and Our People
Our Environmental and Climate Justice Committee worked alongside Beyond Coal, Healthlinc, and the Social Justice Group to discuss the local impact of the oil and gas facilities.
We take a stand against systemic oppression perpetuated by the traditional energy industry which exposes communities to health , economic, and social hazards.
