FEATURING KEYNOTE ADDRESS BY: Diane Wilson, Environmental Activist and Author
“We’re losing ground. This planet is losing ground. So things need to happen and they need to happen quick. Our message should be—loud and clear—there comes a time when the home needs protecting and the line needs drawing and anybody that dares cross it acts at their own peril.”
A shrimper turned activist turned environmentalist, Diane Wilson has spent the past 20 years taking on giant corporations polluting the beloved Texas Gulf Coast bay where she and her family lived. With no training, Diane organized community action, become conversant about the health effects of chemicals, and learned how to file her own legal briefs in an effort to stop the expansion of a plastics manufacturing plant. In 2005, Diane authored a book, An Unreasonable Woman, a semi-autobiographical narrative of her fight to protect the community she loved.
