Description Transcript (22 pages) of inteview by Rob Debirk with John Urgo on July 22, 2008
Abstract Urgo is from Brooklyn, New York, and joined Green Corps, after studying Environmental Science in college, which moved him around the country a lot until he applied for a job with HEAL Utah in 2005 (which tends to focus on nuclear issues). He believes that environmental problems are justice problems and is active in power relations. His work in Green Corps involved a lot of organizing and volunteer recruitment, so then he became the Outreach Director for HEAL. As an organization they don't come up with plans and policy but more so educate the public to work towards change and watchdog big industry such as Energy Solutions. They're trying to keep nuclear waste and reactors out of Utah. He is a strong believer in renewable energy. Utah Environmentalist Oral History Project. Interviewer: Rob DeBirk
