Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Pete Westover will open the Hitchcock Center’s 2018 Environmental Justice series with a dramatic illustrated examination of Native land loss and recovery efforts in New England, the battle for control of the Penobscot River, threats to national monuments and sacred sites, urban and rural “food deserts,” Connecticut Valley energy and air-quality issues, Hydro-Quebec and its impacts on Cree culture, and the effects of climate change on vulnerable communities. He will also illustrate the environmental justice work of Conservation Law Foundation and other organizations relating to Boston Harbor public access and resiliency, Mystic River cleanup work, Massachusetts public transportation expansion, the Springfield biomass proposal, the coal-free New England campaign, and the Exxon-Mobil case.
