Justice for Mother Earth!
National environmental justice activist Bill Gallegos will offer a talk on the real faces of activism in the environmental movement. Bill began his activism with the La Raza/Chicano movement, and now organizes for the health and environment of communities of color at Communities for a Better Environment.
Come hear how his California alliance won a major victory against Chevron Corporation — in a landmark David vs. Goliath court battle against the corporation’s effort to expand their plant to refine the dirtiest of crude oil: tar sands. Bill is currently working to help create a national movement that brings labor, environment, and social justice together to protect our communities and environment.
The event will begin at 6:30 pm at Parkway Theater (4814 Chicago Avenue South, Minneapolis)
