“From Industrial Livestock Farms to Mining for Sand and Iron: How Citizens Defend Our Natural Heritage”is the message that Kimberlee Wright, Executive Director of Midwest Environmental Advocates of Madison will be bringing to the May 21st Door County Environmental Council seminar at Crossroads at Big Creek. Both of these extremely important issues now threaten all of the residents of Wisconsin with the impacts, known and unknown, on the health and future welfare of everyone living in the state and beyond.
Kim Wright has become well-known for her leadership in the citizen battles that are happening all over Wisconsin in the effort to defend and maintain resource and health protection. From the sand mining operations in western Wisconsin, to the animal waste expansion projects in this northeast part of our state, the Midwest Environmental Advocates group has been the strong force in the opposition. With the de-funding and removal of the Wisconsin Public Intervener defense office, the Midwest Environmental Advocates has risen to the task of concentrating on public welfare and human and natural resource issues.
In these times when it appears that most State agencies responsible for resource protection have been purposely under funded and have had their enforcement powers limited, the action of the Midwest Environmental Advocates has become the only effective voice to defend resources in facing the challenge of big money influence. You have seen the result of resource destruction all over Wisconsin in the quest for making fortunes, just as the lumber barons pillaged the entire state in the last century contrary to the laws of nature and resource conservation.
Bring your friends and neighbors to this eye-opening presentation at Crossroads at Big Creek on Wednesday May 21st at 7:00 p.m. and hear what is being done to protect your rights as citizens and residents of Wisconsin. You will also hear what must be done in the future. A question and answer period will follow Kimberlee’s presentation.
