What Can the Video Be About?
MASE invites you to create a video in 5 min or less about the impacts of uranium mining and milling on people in the area as well as their families and communities.
We thought of some questions to get you started:
- How has living in a former uranium mining area affected you and or your family?
- What happened to the people and environment in the Grants, Laguna, Acoma, and Navajo communities as a result of mining and milling?
- Do young people know what happened?
- Has everything been cleaned and is it safe to live here now?
Who is the Multicultural Alliance for a Safe Environment (MASE)?
MASE is a non-profit alliance rooted in the experiences of uranium-impacted communities of the southwestern U.S. We are communities working to restore and protect the natural and cultural environment through respectfully promoting intercultural engagement among communities and institutions for the benefit of all life and future generations. MASE is comprised of five grassroots groups representing the multicultural communities in the Grants Mineral Belt.
