Coal ash is toxic. Tell President Obama that protection from coal ash contamination has to be robust, mandatory and nationwide.
Advancing Sustainable Communities: People, Pollinators and Practices, the 32nd National Pesticide Forum, will allow grassroots advocates, scientists, policy makers and engaged citizens to interact and strategize on solutions that are protective of health and the environment.
April 11th – 12th, 2014
University Place Hotel and Conference Center (310 SE Lincoln Street in Portland)
Keynote presentations, workshops, and plenary panels will focus on solutions to the decline of pollinators and other beneficials; strengthening organic agriculture; improving farmworker protection and agricultural justice; and creating healthy buildings, schools and homes. By working with a range of environmental, health, consumer, and farm organizations, organizers expect to bring together a diverse crowd in order to share our efforts to build local, state and national strategies for strength, growth and health.
