The Pueblo Chicano Movement — through the work of activists from La Gente and Salt Creek — worked to protect the environment and barrios harmed by industrial waste. This panel discussion will explore the work done to stop asbestos pollution from Rockwool or to ensure clean water for residents of Salt Creek and the ultimate impact on Pueblo’s neighborhoods. The discussion will also focus on today’s neighborhood issues, including Pueblo’s West Side.
Pueblo residents are invited to listen to the history from the panel and join in on the conversation. The event is free and open to the public.
The panel is hosted by El Pueblo History Museum and CSU-Pueblo.
