In this national briefing recorded on July 18, 2019, you will hear from frontline organizers about the steps they are taking to STOP NUCLEAR WASTE DUMPS in TEXAS and NEW MEXICO and the “Mobile Chernobyl” shipments they would trigger, as well as next steps needed to stop the US Congress from changing the law to make these dangerous plans legal.
