Dear Friends of Navajo Boy,
Three recent articles help Groundswell leverage more pressure to clean up radioactive uranium hazards on Navajo lands. “Let’s call attention to all the other Navajo communities that don’t have a film and a media campaign,” says Groundswell’s Navajo Community educator Mary Begay. Today, a multi-million dollar EPA cleanup is happening at Skyline mine, in the family compound of Elsie Mae Begay, featured in the film The Return of Navajo Boy. Groundswell is making plans to educate, train and organize other Navajo families to advocate too. Thank you for your support and contributions.
