The discussion will concern the issues surrounding worker exposure to toxins in the workplace, specifically trichloroethylene (TCE) at the former View-master factory in Beaverton, Oregon. The experiences of environmental justice activists Jeri Sundvall (founder, Environmental Justice Action Group [EJAG]) and Amanda Evans (founder, Victims of TCE Exposure [VOTE]) paired with input from former ESCO worker laison Daniel Cutugno, will provide for in depth discussion on toxic exposure that occurred in our very own backyard.
Also at issue is the health of Powell's workers in Beaverton, as TCE vapors have been located in their workplace.
This panel is in conjuction with the 2004 Environmental Affairs Symposium. Directions at www.lclark.edu.
