It has become a WPIRG tradition to kick off a new academic year with a showcase event featuring rising artists whose creative work, critical lens on society and commitment to social change inspires us to roll up our sleeves again (or for the first time!) and get ready for another year of social and environmental justice organizing on campus and in the local community. This year’s event line up is sure to be no different. We hope you’ll join us for an evening of hip hop, poetry and performance and, while you’re at it, get to know WPIRG and our community of campus and community activists.

Chemical Valley Toxic Tour 2015


Ten years ago, a health report surfaced that showed two girls were being born for every boy in Aamjiwnaang First Nation due to toxic chemicals emanating from industry in Chemical Valley. The news made international headlines and shamed the Canadian government. Since that time, more refineries have been built, more pipelines have spilled, and the community continues to have inadequate research and information on the scale of contamination in the air, lands, and waters belonging to them.

Event Details:

WPIRG and the Waterloo Aboriginal Education Centre are organizing two buses leaving from the KW area to Aamjiwnaang for the Toxic Tour 2015.

Bus 1: Leaves Friday Sept 4th. Will stay over night. 

Bus 2: Leaves Sat Sept 5th. Day trip only.
