Thursday: Workshop in Arlington on Virginia's Uranium Mining Ban

Should Virginia let private companies mine for uranium in southern Virginia? That will be the focus of a workshop in Arlington on Thursday evening:
Join Keep the Ban coalition members Sierra Club, Virginia Conservation Network and Virginia League of Conservation Voters for the 2011 summer workshop in Arlington.

Want to know more about the toxic legacy that uranium mining creates? Or how to schedule a meeting with your local public official? This year’s Legislative Contact Team briefings will focus on the Keep The Ban Campaign giving you a chance to learn more about the problem and supply you with the tools you need to help maintain the current ban on uranium mining in Virginia.

5:30pm - 6:00pm Dinner (free of charge)
6:00pm - 7:30pm Presentation and Discussion

Arlington Central Library Auditorium
1015 North Quincy Street
