Thank you, Chris Kelly, for helping us amplify our voices. We hope others will continue to join in as they begin to understand what is at stake.
Friends of Lackawanna has set the local standard for generating noise. The nonprofit grass-roots group opposes the proposed 50-year expansion of the Keystone landfill, which would pollute Dunmore, Throop and their neighbors in perpetuity. On March 21 at 6 p.m. at the Radisson at Lackawanna Station hotel, Friends of Lackawanna will host a free presentation introduced by Sen. Bob Casey.
The panel includes Lois Gibbs, the mother who exposed the environmental crimes of Love Canal and went on to found the nonprofit Center for Health, Environment & Justice. She is coming here because local people who dare challenge the toxic status quo reached out and did so out loud.
