With recent news about lead in school drinking water and toxic industrial emissions hot spots, environmental and health issues are in the news. Merlyn Hough of Lane Regional Air Protection Agency will join me to discuss local air pollution issues, Julia Olson of Our Children’s Trust will discuss her pioneering legal efforts to fight climate change, and Oregon Environmental Council and Oregon’s Department of Environmental Quality will discuss their efforts and plans to protect Oregonians’ air and water.
Our health is intimately connected to our local environment, especially housing, food, air and water. As these issues become better known and more acute, we need new tools and approaches to protect our health and our children’s health.
Come for the presentations and the discussion and join in:
