Keeping Hope Alive: Overcoming Toxic Legacies
Time & Location
About the Event
April 22nd marks the 50th anniversary of the first Earth Day, and while this year might look a little different, there are still ways for all of us to take action from home!
This Earth Day, the Glynn Environmental Coalition, One Hundred Miles, and Georgia Interfaith Power and Light are partnering to bring environmental advocacy straight to your computer screen. Join us on Wednesday, April 22nd at 5 pm (via Zoom or phone) for a free action webinar to learn more about the toxic waste sites impacting our coast and how we can hold polluters accountable.
During the webinar, we'll explain how coastal Georgia, home to some of the most scenic marshes on the planet, is impacted by the industrial contaminants at superfund sites and coal ash ponds. We'll walk you through:
• Commenting on a permit application submitted by the company responsible for the Terry Creek Superfund site • Ways to support coal ash cleanup in Georgia • How we can work together to ensure an exciting ballot measure passes in 2020 that will help communities clean up hazardous waste sites
Join us for this our Earth Day Action Webinar to learn more about the contamination along our coast and actionable steps you can take to protect the people and places we love!
