From my former history professor Char Miller comes word of a candidate forum on environmental issues on the Trinity campus this Sunday:
What: The Texas Environmental Watch Alliance, along with a host of prominent co-sponsors, will host a no-nonsense forum on key environmental policy issues for the candidates in the primary elections/nominating conventions for U.S. Congressional Districts 20, 21, and 28. At a time when decisions about air pollution, water quality and alternate energy are more important than ever, our Representatives must be held accountable for their actions. Questions will come from local and statewide environmental experts, as well as from the audience. The forum will be moderated by Dr. Char Miller, Chair of the History Department at Trinity University, and Director of the Urban Studies Program. The event is free and open to the public.
When: Sunday, February 26, 2:00pm - 5:00pm
Where: Laurie Auditorium, Trinity University Campus (from 281 go east on Hildebrand, take first left at Stadium Drive, fork right at bottom of hill and follow to auditorium on left)
