Our Collective Amnesia About Nuclear Waste
Pax Christi TX Quarterly Social Justice Forum
Zoom Meeting via: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/84424158092?pwd=L3hZVFJSQW45NWZkTHNTNjZzQ281QT09
Presenter: Cynthia Weehler has decades of experience as an anti-nuclear activist and educator.
While residing in San Antonio, TX, she taught high school chemistry and astronomy, and also organized a coalition which was responsible for stopping the building of two new nuclear reactors at the South TX Nuclear Project in 2009.
After retiring from teaching, she returned to her home state of New Mexico and continues to educate the public on nuclear issues. Her present focus is on the transportation of nuclear waste to the WIPP repository in NM and the Department of Energy shipments through highly populated areas, mainly in Texas, but also puts neighborhoods in ten states at risk.
What keeps her going is what she learned from her friend and mentor, Maria Antonietta Berriozabel, the first Latina on San Antonio’s city council, that doing the work is what matters and that sometimes you succeed.
