CFACT at the University of Pittsburgh, Bradford performed tabling outreach to students on the issues of the Ukraine invasion, the environment, and energy.
According to CFACT activist Shakira Jackson, “I tabled on my campus to spread awareness about how the Ukraine Invasion will affect our environment. I shared how Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is causing air, ground, and water pollution that will be long-lasting. In addition, risks for contamination and health problems arise when nuclear sites are disturbed. The current crisis could also affect future climate policy by diverting resources; we need peace in our world. I provided goody bags with candy and articles about this issue and it was a very informational experience both for me and the students.”
Events like this provide a bridge for CFACT to connect with students on issues many people care about, so that CFACT can begin to also reach them on issues like climate policy, fracking, and regulations.
Jackson has organized many such events on campus to better reach the members of the student body that are not hearing the truth on these issues.
