Working Together to Protect Our Future Generations
The Yupik people of St. Lawrence Island have been harmed and displaced by contamination from former military bases. The military disposed of massive quantities of toxic waste on their Island that continues to adversely affect the health and well-being of the people. Annie Alowa, a respected elder, raised concerns about adverse health effects. The people of the Island are working to hold the military and chemical industry accountable for violations of human rights. They ask for cooperation in community-based research and advocacy efforts to protect lands, water, and the health of present and future generations.
