Watch NEIS’ Night With the Experts!
Our most recent guest expert was Diné activist :
Director, Diné No Nukes
Nuclear Issues Study Group, Albuquerque, New Mexico
Leona has long-standing expertise and firsthand experience with uranium mining issues on Indigenous lands worldwide; has presented on Indigenous rights issues at COP-24; and is the co-founder of the Radiation Monitoring Project, providing radiation monitors and professional training on their use to frontline contaminated communities. She is currently involved in a national organizing effort to prevent the construction “centralized interim storage” dumps for high-level radioactive wastes in southeast New Mexico and West Texas. Indigenous lands and impoverished tribes are routinely targeted by the U.S. Dept. of Energy and the nuclear industry to serve as dump communities for this deadly waste. The Diné Reservation in New Mexico is also the site of the largest human-made spill of radioactive material in the history of North America, the Church Rock mill tailings spill into the Puerco River, July 16, 1979.
How “Night with the Experts” Works:
With most webinars, especially online, speakers talk for the majority of the time, often leaving little time for detailed questions or genuine discussion. With NWTE, we reverse that format. The guest expert(s) will be given about 10 minutes to introduce their information on the topic. Then, the remainder of the time will be given to the watching/listening participants to ask questions and engage in moderated discussion. Participants will indicate in the ZOOM “Chat Box” their wish to speak or ask a question, and will be acknowledged in the order received.
NEIS will conduct the series at 7 p.m. on the last Thursday of each month, so mark your calendar. Next Up: “Nuclear Power in a COVID World,” our experts TBD; Thursday, September 24th, 7 p.m. Central TZ. Hope to see you at both of these events! ... See MoreSee Less
