03 Jun Freedom Ride West: Toxic Reality on High Country News – The Joy Trip Project
Port Arthur, TX is a long way from Colorado. But when Texas environmental justice advocate Hilton Kelley delivered a message to the Mountain Film Festival in Telluride, he demonstrated an activist power that transcends that distance. Kelley, who fights for the rights of poor populations whose health is negatively impacted by oil refinery pollution, spoke on the importance of protecting the rights of all to enjoy clean air, water and soil.
The series Freedom Ride West is running on the blog for High Country News Magazine, a by-monthly print publication that covers the natural resources and environment of the American West, www.hcn.org
The Joy Trip Project is made possible thanks to the support our sponsor Patagonia.
