Community Rights Attorney Lindsey Schroman-Wawrin to visit Decorah

Can our counties use Community

Rights ordinances to address the

very real threat of frac sand mining? 
Public Talk with Nationally Known
Community Rights Attorney

Tue, February 3 at 4:00-5:30 pm 
at Northeast Iowa Peace and Justice Center,
119 Winnebago Street
, Decorah
Attorney Lindsey Schromen-Wawrin from Washington State will give a short presentation with time for Q&A regarding a Community Rights ordinance to ban frac sand mining in Winneshiek County.
Civil Rights and Constitutional Law Attorney Lindsey Schromen-Wawrin has spent the last several years assisting communities as they attempt to keep out unwanted industrial activity and to re-establish their right to local decision-making. His work seeks to "challenge the legitimacy of corporate rights, as large corporations frequently use their 'rights' at the expense of the community." Here in Winneshiek County we face the threat of frac sand mining corporations invoking their "right to mine."
Schromen-Wawrin will discuss potential next steps in our effort to ban frac sand mining. The content of the talk will presume a basic understanding of Community Rights, but those unfamiliar with the approach are welcome to attend. The event will take place at the Northeast Iowa Peace and Justice Center on 119 Winnebago Street in Decorah from 4-5:30pm.
Over 150 communities across the country, including the city of Pittsburg and Mendocino County, CA, have already passed into law what are commonly referred to as "Community Rights ordinances."
The Community Rights Alliance of Winneshiek County is an alliance of citizens of the Driftless Region of the Midwest. We peacefully assert our Constitutional right to local, democratic self-governance, for the purpose of protecting the health and integrity of our communities, our commonly shared natural resources, and our future.
