The attorney for the Food Project at Public Justice in Washington, D.C. will be speaking in Sturgeon Bay Thursday. Jessica Culpepper will be at Crossroads at Big Creek and address the legal approach people can take to address the drinking water impacts from industrial animal agriculture. She says people must be motivated to make change happen.
Culpepper, who went to Georgetown University for environmental law and is currently practicing in North Carolina, will explain how factory farms can be held legally accountable to the communities they have polluted and bear the costs of proper waste management. The Door County Environmental Council is hosting the one-hour presentation that is free and open to the public starting at 7 pm Thursday.
