In the fall of 2022, Franciscan Action Network, the Franciscan Federation and the Franciscan Friars (OFM) US-6 JPIC Working Group offered a 4-part webinar series on Confronting Environmental Racism.

The centerpiece of our series consisted of three short documentaries produced by Hip Hop Caucus called “Big Oil’s Last Lifeline.” At three of our four gatherings, we viewed one 20-minute long documentary and heared from a speaker in one of the “sacrifice zones” in the U.S.–Houston, Louisiana, and West Virginia–while at the fourth we discussed advocacy options with experienced activists.

The second of our series focused on Cancer Alley in New Orleans, Louisiana. Watch the recording on our YouTube Channel by clicking the photo below.
