Program Overview

Don't miss HEAL Utah's biggest event of the year, held at our new venue-- the Rice Eccles Towers at the University of Utah football stadium.

Over the past decade, HEAL has taken on many Goliaths-- and won.  We'll be taking a look back at our biggest accomplishments from the past decade, from banning hotter radioactive waste to halting the dangerous Divine Strake weapons test to publishing our eUtah Renewable Energy blueprint.

Join us to hear the story of how a small group of Utah citizens, concerned about the damaging health effects of industrial pollution and the nearby chemical weapons incinerator, came together to form what would become one of the most effective environmental advocacy organizations in the state. 

We'll also discuss the most important campaigns for HEAL in 2013, including our newest focus: Cleaning up Utah's dirty air.

The multimedia program will include speeches from political activist, author, and one of HEAL's founders, Chip Ward; HEAL's Executive Director Christopher Thomas; our Policy Director Matt Pacenza; and others.
