Rally to Stop the Polluting Port

17 September 2019 Published in News & Events

Dear FRIENDS,

Here's a message from Stop the Polluting Port coalition:

No one knows the full impact the proposed polluting port may have on our health.

Will you rally with us on Wednesday, September 18 at the Utah State Capitol? TIME: 10:15 AM.

We’re asking Utah’s legislative leaders to fund a Health Impact Assessment on development proposed for the Utah Inland Port in Salt Lake City. 

Join concerned community members at a press conference and rally calling on Utah Legislative leaders to fund a comprehensive Health Impact Analysis of new development proposed for the area controlled by the Utah Inland Port Authority. What will the impact of thousands of new truck and car trips be on our air quality, water quality, and the Great Salt Lake ecosystem? What will the impacts of light and noise pollution be? Utahns deserve answers before our tax dollars are further committed to this ill-conceived project. Bring a sign (we'll also have some on hand for you to use).

People power is making a big difference in our fight for a healthy community. Join us.

Thanks for all you do!!

Why We Care

  • While photographing at The Great Salt Lake, I learned that it is a vastly different experience than other bodies of water. It is other-worldy, eerie, and beautiful at the same time. It is calming, peaceful, and a very inspirational place to be. Some may call the experience spiritual. Others may call it freeing. I call it magical.

    My favorite quote is by Loren Eisley; “If there is magic in this world, it is contained in water.” I absolutely believe that The Great Salt Lake is a place of magic, and that is what I strive to showcase.
