Protecting Tacoma’s Health: A Teach-in on the Dangers of Fracked Gas in our Tideflats

October 14 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm PDT

Join Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility, Power Past Fracked Gas, 350 Tacoma & 350 Seattle for a teach-in on the health impacts of fracked gas facilities in Tacoma.
The dangers of the Puget Sound Energy’s Tacoma Liquefied Natural Gas facility extend beyond the climate crisis — directly threatening the health of Tacoma residents and all communities unfortunate enough to lay along its pathway from British Columbia down through the Salish Sea.
Come listen, learn, and get involved as our four expert panelists explore the myriad threats to our health and wellbeing posed by this facility and present ways you can help.
Experts will share their unique perspectives with opportunities for participants to ask questions and participate in a larger discussion. We will end with a brief training on ways you can get involved now and easy next steps to join the resistance against toxic fracked gas in the ancestral tideflats of the Puyallup Tribe, known today as the Port of Tacoma.
