The Fight Against Environmental Racism: Updates from the Frontlines in Bayview Hunters Point, Richmond & Kettleman City
How to Stop the 1% from Poisoning Us

Community struggles against environmental racism and injustice are raging in low-income communities of color across the bay area, state and country. Communities are fighting for their lives, and for justice, challenging giant corporate polluters like Chevron and Chemical Waste Management and the government agencies that protect the 1% that profit from polluting our communities.

Hear from activists on the frontlines and get involved in planning actions this spring!

Speakers:
Maricla Mares Alatorre, El Pueblo/People for Clean Air & Water, Kettleman City (San Joaquin Valley)
Henry Clark, West County Toxics Coalition, Richmond
Marie Harrison, Greenaction Community Organizer, Bayview Hunters Point
Tessie Ester, Huntersview Mothers Committee for Health and Environmental Justice
Bradley Angel, Greenaction for Health and Environmental Justice

Donations gladly accepted to cover costs – no one turned away for lack of funds!

The last half hour will be reserved for Occupy Working Groups and Affinity Group announcements. Location: Local 2, 209 Golden Gate at Leavenworth, near the Civic Center BART. This is a smoke- and alcohol-free space. Join us at OccupyForum!
