The Life and Activism of the Legendary Diane Wilson
The hard, hard work of defending the coast.
This episode of the Sea Change Podcast features activism in action! Join Jenna as she checks in with Diane Wilson, a 4th-generation shrimper, activist, and author who is currently on a hunger strike to pressure the Biden Administration to stop the dredging of the mercury-contaminated Matagorda Ship Channel on Texas' Gulf Coast.
Diane fears, and the Army Corps of Engineers acknowledges, that mercury contamination from the nearby Alcoa Superfund site could be unearthed and devastate fisheries that local communities are working to restore and revitalize.
Tune in to this episode to learn from Diane's 30+ years of activism experience. Trust us, you don't want to miss this one.
