“Why: Lois Gibbs is coming to Tucson • to provide support, advice and solidarity to the citizens fighting for justice in the decades-long Tucson TCE/1,4-Dioxane water contamination. • to join the Environmental Justice Task Force EJTF in protesting the neglect by the Federal government, by the State of Arizona, Pima County, the City of Tucson and the University of Arizona, of the victims whose health has been adversely impacted by the decades-long TCE,1,4-Dioxane contamination. • to call for a stop to the environmental racism that has created an institutional blindness and callous indifference to the suffering caused by the criminal industrial pollution.
