Truth and Reconciliation on Environmental Harm

Bill Gallegos 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.

Cosponsored by the Center for Earth Energy and Democracy and CURA.
