How can Portland, with a reputation as one of the greenest cities in America, be home to the #1 polluter in America, and have 63 area schools ranked among the bottom 10-percent for air quality due to exposure to industrial air pollution?  Come hear panelists such as Love Canal’s Lois Gibbs!

This is a workshop for community groups concerned about industrial air pollution in their neighborhoods. The workshop will help leaders of these groups strengthen messages, identify key decision makers and what they can do, learn how to use data to support their causes, and learn about federal and state air emissions regulations.
