Using the Earth Democracy/Military Poisons Website and “PFAS and the Military” Projects
Combating Military Poisons and Valuing Water
On Sunday, March 21st–the day before World Water Day–WILPF US Earth Democracy Committee and Vermont PFAS and Military Poisons Coalition are offering a webinar to introduce people to our newly designed website—Military Poisons—which exposes the connections between water, food, and health to military PFAS contamination. The webinar will be one-hour: 5 PM-EDT. Register in advance for this program at: https://bit.ly/MilitaryPoisons After registering you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. Seating is limited to 100 registrants.
This reformatted website is both a resource and research tool for those who want to learn more about PFAS contamination and the military and take grassroots action. The website is now more accessible and easier to navigate. Besides demonstrating the new website and how to research confirmed and suspected military contamination sites in your state and region, we’ll introduce you to the newest PFAS and the Military Project that is starting in Vermont. You’ll hear about the Vermont Project and from those working on it, including Pat Elder, a PFAS investigative journalist; Patricia Hynes, environmental health expert; Marguerite Adelman, WILPF Burlington team leader; and James Ehlers, Vermont project coordinator and environmental advocate.
