Named an "Emerging Explorer" by National Geographic, Dr. Tyrone Hayes will deliver the Environmental Studies Convocation keynote speech. We have planned four distinct events for Friday and Saturday of the conference, centering on the visit of Dr. Hayes, distinguished professor of Integrative Biology at UC Berkeley. The conference will address the impacts of herbicide spraying, community health and water quality.

Dr. Hayes studies the role of steroid hormones on amphibian development and has published 39 peer reviewed articles on related research. His findings regarding hermaphroditism in frogs as a result of exposure to the commonly-used herbicide atrazine have created national attention both within academia and beyond. Because of the similarities between amphibian hormonal systems and our own, Hayes’ work raises startling questions about environmental toxicity.

The weekend’s events are as follows, and you are cordially invited to attend any and all as you are able:

• Friday, October 25th, noon – The City Club of Eugene, Downtown Athletic Club Ballroom“Another Silent Spring?” Dr. Hayes will speak at the Eugene City Club about his findings and their implications. [$5 entry fee for non- City Club members]

• Friday, October 25th, 3:00 - 5:00pm – University of Oregon, 250 Clinical Services "Nature in Doubt: Intersex in a Chemical Era.”  Professor Hayes will also participate on a panel with Women and Gender Studies Professor Lizzie Reis concerning the implications of his work in the field of gender studies.

• Friday, October 25th, 7:00 - 9:00pm – University of Oregon, 182 Lillis Hall "From Silent Spring to Silent Night: Of Toads and Men." Dr. Hayes will deliver an Environmental Studies Department Convocation keynote.

• Saturday, October 26th, 9:00am - 4:00pm – Triangle Lake Grange “The Witness to Action Assembly: Putting Chemical Trespass on Oregon’s Agenda.” A one-of-a-kind environmental health and justice bus tour focusing on herbicides and health in rural Oregon. Community members, environmental justice advocates, scholars, students, scientists and officials will travel with Dr. Tyrone Hayes from the UO to Triangle Lake to learn about herbicide exposure from the ground up and explore our capacity for social change. Details->

Please respond to 541-465-8860 or via email: info@beyondtoxics.org. You may also register directly online: http://www.beyondtoxics.org/TyroneHayes/
Advance registration is required for the environmental health and justice bus tour on Saturday.

We hope that you will make time in your schedule to meet Dr. Hayes, meet UO scholars and students, and hear Hayes’ compelling discourse about his research and its implications to building a base of knowledge for environmental health and the role of pesticides in water quality and human health.

---------

The conference is supported by Beyond Toxics, the UO Environmental Studies program, the Oregon Humanities Center, the Environmental Sciences Institute, the biology department, the Institute of Ecology and Evolution, the chemistry department, the Center for the Studies of Women and Society, the women and gender studies department, the Environmental Humanities Research Interest Group.

WHAT: A coalition of five Oregon-based environmental justice organizations – PCUN, Unete, Beyond Toxics, Oregon Action and NW Forest Worker Center – are hosting the September 25th meeting of the Oregon Environmental Justice Task Force.

The Environmental Justice Task Force was created by Governor Kitzhaber and the Legislature to help protect Oregonians from disproportionate environmental impacts on minority and low-income populations. The legislation that created the EJTF requires state agencies to give communities of color and low-income communities knowledge and access to improve decisions that affect environment and the health of all Oregonians.

WHY: This Environmental Justice Gathering is a landmark event for Oregon. Harsh working conditions and exposure to toxic chemicals is a serious concern in Oregon. Workers, minority residents and rural communities have the greatest burden of exposure and harm.

ACTION:
• Please send a representative from your organization to the September 25th Environmental Justice Gathering in Medford.

• INVITE OTHERS TO ATTEND! With a united presence, we can share the powerful stories of our experiences to advance justice.

LOGISTICS:
For more information, contact Joel Iboa, Beyond Toxics Environmental Justice Community Outreach Manager. Office: 541-465-8860 - Email: jiboa@beyondtoxics.org

Your written comments are VERY important. This is true even if you don’t live in Milwaukee because bees know no boundaries – they can forage for miles!
