Truth To Power | People Over Petro | Aug. 9, 2020

Update: 2020-08-06


On this week’s Truth To Power, we gather folks into the virtual studio for a community conversation about resisting the petrochemical build-out in the Ohio River Valley. Joining Forward Radio programmer Justin Mog (Sustainability Now!) in the virtual studio this week are four members of the People Over Petro coalition: Alice Melendez (Extinction Rebellion Kentucky), Mary Aguilera (Buckeye Environmental Network & Ohio Poor People's Campaign, Cincinnati), Kelsey McNaul (Climate Reality Project, Pittsburgh), and Josh Eisenfeld (Fair Shake Environmental Legal Services, Pittsburgh). Despite failing economics and environmental health hazards, the petrochemical industry is persistent in its attempts to develop in the Ohio River Valley…but people are standing up to the threats to our natural and cultural heritage!
