Vastly increasing the production of plastic is the new fossil fuel industry strategy to maintain its profits—which means increasing toxic pollution at every step, from oil/gas extraction to production to waste.
Join us to learn more about this racist and ecocidal campaign, and how people are fighting to stop it. The program includes:
A short animated film, The Story of Plastic, which summarizes a longer documentary explaining the whole disastrous process.
— Julie Teel Simonds, Center for Biological Diversity, providing an overview of this strategy;
— Miriam Gordon, Upstream Solutions, sharing information about current state and federal bills to reduce plastics;
— Sharon Lavigne, RISE St. James, the community organization in Louisiana’s Cancer Alley focused on preventing expansion and worsening petrochemical plant pollution in the area.
