Worth watching: “Forgotten Toxic Waste Dump”

Learn about one of the most toxic sites on the Columbia River: Bradford Island and surrounding waters.

I hope you’re more motivated than ever to hold the U.S. government accountable for decades of dumping toxic pollution on Bradford Island and surrounding waters. I was blown away by our speakers, Davis Washines and Laura Shira of Yakama Nation’s Fisheries Program, who presented at Monday’s webinar, “Forgotten Toxic Waste Dump: The Bradford Island Story.” Davis’s words stuck with me: "We want you, along with us, to imagine a clean and productive river that sustains us.”

If you joined the webinar and want to share the experience with friends and family, please share this blog post. If you missed it, check out the recording here:
