The Politics and Pollution of LA’s Oil and Gas Industry

Sunday, August 20, 11:00 a.m. – noon 
NH Living Room
Massive oil drilling is one of LA’s best kept secrets. Behind hedges and gates are over a thousand active wells, sometimes twelve feet from a child’s bedroom window. Empowered with money, the oil industry both lobbies politicians and places their own regulators in local government positions. Dr. Leah Garland will illustrate the pollution and racism inherent in LA’s urban oil drilling and the fight to shut it down.  Contact Susette Horspool for more information. All are welcome.
