Nukewatch Quarterly Summer 2022
We are happy to welcome Lindsay Potter to the Nukewatch staff! Our part-time IT support and writer Christine Manwiller had to step back because of growing responsibilities at her full-time job. Lindsay is a writer, farmer, activist, and a full-time mother. After completing two BA’s, in Poetry and Journalism, Lindsay has spent several years farming and now dedicates her time to getting back to the land, caring for family, and participating in community grassroots organizing for social, racial, and environmental/climate justice. Most recently Lindsay focused on two projects: working in Osceola, Wisconsin to protect the groundwater and the St. Croix River from harmful frac sand mining practices at the North 40 Mine, particularly as a member of the Town Board Committee drafting a new ordinance limiting and regulating the mine; and working with Amery (WI) United, a community group dedicated to racial justice organizing, that planned monthly rallies throughout the summer of 2020 and now focuses on building awareness of racism in rural Wisconsin by hosting diverse educational speakers, working with local school boards to address discussions and curricula around race, and creating events encouraging celebration and centering of Black American culture.
