Join us in our webinar Growing our Future Rooted in Health and Justice, which will happen on Wednesday, January 13th, 2021 at 4pm MT / 6pm ET.
This webinar will be presented in memory of Bahati Ansari.
During this 90-minute Zoom webinar, we will have key members of our community presenting an overview of the local work conducted in Albuquerque (NM) related to chemical policy reform, the reports produced (A Day Late and a Dollar Short, Life at the Fenceline and Who’s in Danger) and the continuous engagement with Dollar General. The presenters will discuss the strategies used to educate corporate retail on environmental and economic justice, presenting a paradigm shift of corporate extraction to community health and wealth.
