8/20/17 – Michelle Holman – Community Rights
Michelle Holman talks about her experience as a member of the Community Rights Movement.
Holman has lived in Western Lane County’s Coast Range (Deadwood) for more than 30 years and has been active in the anti-herbicide struggle since the late 1970’s.
After many years of her community’s unsuccessful fight to stop government-protected aerial spraying of toxic chemicals by private logging companies, Holman renounced traditional activism and joined the Community Rights Movement. She’s also served on the Mapleton School Board for 25 years, where 20 years ago, the school district stopped using toxic chemicals on school grounds.
