What does it mean?

The right to a safe, healthy, productive, and sustainable environment for all. Building the power of low-income, communities of color, and other marginalized communities to challenge corporate and     government practices that disproportionately expose them to toxic waste & environmental degradation.

EXAMPLES OF CHANGE:

  • 2000 – Western Colorado Congress WINS a legislative battle by defeating a bill that would allow corporations to import radioactive waste to a designated Superfund Site in rural Western Slope, about 40 miles southwest of Grand Junction.
  • 2012 – Alamosa Riverkeepers continues to organize community members to clean up the toxic mess from the worst mining    disaster in Colorado.  Residents in one of the poorest, rural counties in the US are reclaiming this Superfund site and restoring the river/water supply that they count on for everyday use.
