LWV of Lee to present program on Caloosahatchee

By Staff | Oct 23, 2019

The League of Women Voters of Lee County Florida will host an educational program, “A Bill of Rights for the Caloosahatchee,” on Nov. 2 from 9 to 11 a.m. at The Laboratory Theatre in Fort Myers.

Former educator Joseph Bonasia, outreach coordinator for the Fort Myers chapter of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby, community coordinator for Pachamama Alliance of Southwest Florida and Sierra Club activist who organized the first electric vehicle showcase at the Edison and Ford Estates, will talk.

Should the Caloosahatchee be granted “citizenship”? If corporations are – as Citizens’ United affirmed – why not waterways? After all, they continue to be the dumping pit for cities and counties in Florida, as well as across the country, despite the Clean Water Act.

The presentation is free to the public.
