As the EPA’s clean up of uranium contamination in Monument Valley continues, Groundswell presents a new webisode documenting Navajo reactions. Groundswell correspondent Mary Helen Begay talks with neighbors and EPA site-coordinator Jason Musante about moving 17,000 cubic yards of radioactive soil. Where is the EPA moving it? Now you can see for yourself. And you can watch more than a dozen webisodes to follow this ongoing groundswell for environmental justice. The webisodes start in 2000 when Groundswell first exposed the existence of a house made out of uranium.

Groundswell’s media outreach team continues to amplify Navajo voices in this new Associated Press article which has appeared in over 150 news outlets nationwide.

This month Navajo activist and grandmother Elsie Mae Begay, Navajo nuclear scientist Perry Charley, and Groundswell Co-founder, Jeff Spitz, travel to Oregon for a tour of three universities sponsored by the Tokyo Foundation.
