UCC Webinar on "US Military and Environmental Justice"

The United Church of Christ is helping to bring attention to Hawaiʻi's fight for clean drinking water, which is threatened by the US Navy's Red Hill Bulk Fuel Storage Facility on Oʻahu at Kapūkakī, first in this news article written by Hans Holznagel, "Tainted drinking water on Oahu draws UCC response," and now in a Creation Justice webinar titled "US Military and Environmental Justice".

"The United States military is one of the world’s biggest polluters. As an institution, it leads the world in oil consumption and emits enormous amounts of greenhouse gases. In order to grasp the environmental impact of the U.S. military, we must go beyond statistics and numbers. One must listen to those from the communities directly affected.


This webinar provides an overview of environmental justice concerns pertaining to the U.S. military while also centering the voices of those engaged in the struggle to stop the pollution of the Navy’s Red Hill Bulk Fuel Storage Facility on the island of Oahu. To bring the lens of legislative solutions, Congressman Kaialiʻi Kahele joins the panel. Along with Kahele, featured panelists include: Wayne Tanaka from the Sierra Club, Danny Tengan from Hawaiʻi Conference of the United Church of Christ Disaster Response, and Lorah Steichen from the National Priorities Project."
