Event Details

Toxic chemicals are showing up in Alaska’s land, water, wildlife, and people as the Arctic becomes a sink for industrial pollution from around the world. Military sites, uranium and gold mines, and other industrial sources release hazardous waste into Native villages and traditional hunting and fishing grounds. 2021 Rachel’s Network Catalyst Awardee and Alaska Community Action on Toxics Environmental Health & Justice Program Director Vi Waghiyi joins in conversation with Rachel’s Network Member Betsy Loyless to share how advocates are fighting back and speaking out for the Indigenous people most impacted.

This conversation will be available on demand in late-November. Watch on your own time, and join a Rachel’s Network community conversation about this work on, moderated by Betsy.


(Wednesday) 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
