Erin Brockovich: Environmental Organizing in Portland

On April 2, 2016, the Eastside Portland Air Coalition (EPAC) hosted environmental activist Erin Brockovich at a community forum on air toxins in Portland. In 1993, Brockovich fought a successful legal battle against PG& E in California due to the groundwater contamination from their use of hexavalent chromium. Since her first major legal triumph, she has continued to advocate for communities who have been subjected to industrial environmental contamination. Concerns about toxins in the air, particularly from glass manufacturers, prompted Portlanders to push the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality and the federal Environmental Protection Agency to examine emissions affecting residents' health.

Also speaking on the program are Tamara Rubin of the Lead Safe America Foundation, environmental and consumer claims action attorney Robin Greenwald, and moderator Jody Bleyle of EPAC.

This program was recorded by John Pacheco with help from PC Peri and produced/edited by Allen Evans with help from Dan Handelman.
