Action alert:
We know leukemia rates are high at
River Valley schools in Marion.
We know the school grounds are contaminated.

August 10, 2000

Former federal Superfund toxicologist Bruce Moholt said last week he thinks the 800 students who attend River Valley, and others who work at or use the schools, are at risk for toxic contamination.

Moholt said River Valley students should be relocated as soon as possible, because of a suspected threat from vinyl chloride, which has been proven to cause cancer in humans.

Please call or fax this week:
Tell them not to send the students back to the River Valley schools in Marion on August 22.
