Juristac EIR Comment Writing Workshop Reportback and Video

The 8/4 Protect Juristac EIR Comment Writing Workshop was a great success! Attended by 218 participants, the 2 ½ hour event offered inspiration and guidance for writing comment letters to challenge the Environmental Impact Report for the mining project that threatens Juristac.

After presentations and Q&A concluded, an hour of workshop time was opened with six breakout rooms hosted by volunteers with relevant experience. Breakout discussions on EIR topics such as water quality, biological resources, greenhouse gas emissions and tribal cultural resources allowed for participants to share ideas, ask more specific questions, and swap contact information for future collaboration and followup. The breakout sessions were not recorded.
