Hors d’oeuvres & Wine Reception

 

      Please join us to commemorate the 35th Anniversary of the victory at Love Canal in Niagara Falls, NY and to celebrate Lois Gibbs, the woman who helped launch the environmental health and justice movement and awaken the world to the dangers of chemicals in our environment.

     The words “Love Canal” are synonymous with the dangers from environmental chemicals, public health impacts and environmental devastation. Many people may not know the history of Love Canal but the significance of these words is powerful and the legacy of this crisis everlasting.

      After Love Canal, Gibbs founded the Center for Health, Environment & Justice (CHEJ).  Through training, coalition-building and one-on-one technical and organizing assistance, CHEJ works to level the playing field so that people can have a say in the environmental policies and decisions that affect their health and well-being.  For more than three decades CHEJ has helped over 12,000 communities facing health threats from chemical harm.
