An Invite from the Canadian Environmental Law Association and the Mott Foundation

Posted April 7th, 2020 on Niagara At Large

Dear Great Lakes Friends and Colleagues,

John Jackson, a veteran Canadian environmentalist and former lead member of a now-disbanded binational group called Great Lakes United will be a participant in the webinar session

Thanks to all of you for contributing to the Great Lakes history of activism in the 1980’s and 1990’s project. It is a long time since you have heard from us.

During that time we have been refining the project and getting it to the next stage.

The Healthy Great Lakes Project of the Canadian Environmental Law Association and the Mott Foundation have helped organize the webinar described below. I hope you will get a chance to attend – no problem during the current isolation times.

You will see some of your old-time friends and colleagues on the webinar.

Great Lakes Lessons from the Past: Relevance for Today’s PFAS Campaigns

*Wednesday, April 8 – 12:30-2:00 pm EST

Registration is required. <https://cela.ca/great-lakes-lessons-from-the-past-webinar/>

Another webinar participant, Joyce McLean, served for years as a lead Great Lakes campaigner for Greenpeace

Hosted by Great Lakes advocates from the 1980’s and 1990’s, this webinar will look at key principles, organizing approaches and learnings from past Great Lakes advocacy for PFAS campaigns today.

As busy environmental activists, we all appreciate an opportunity to learn from past efforts and not reinvent the wheel.

Presenters John Jackson, Tim Eder, Joyce McLean and Paul Muldoon will share engaging and relevant stories and photos of past work on toxic chemicals that will illustrate how current Great Lakes advocates can learn from the past.
