Updated: Aug 17, 2021

Paula Maccabee, WaterLegacy

Thursday, June 3, 2021, 8:00 pm EDT / 7:00 pm CDT via livestream on Facebook and Zoom (links below)

Northeast Minnesota is known for its beautiful lakes and forests. And its iron ore mines. Now copper mines are proposed, one next to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Watch WaterLegacy’s Paula Maccabee explain how Minnesota state agencies choose polluters over people and clean water. Paula will showcase PolyMet permits, environmental review, and pollution deregulation rules to reveal just how far agencies are willing to go to make it easier and cheaper to pollute and destroy Minnesota’s natural environment and human health. Ms. Maccabee will update us after her video and answer viewer questions.

Paula Maccabee has 40 years of experience in public interest law. For the past 11 years, she has led WaterLegacy, a Minnesota non-profit protecting clean water, environmental justice, and human health, as its Counsel and Advocacy Director. Paula has previously served as a plaintiffs’ trial attorney, a City Council member and a Special Assistant Attorney General. Paula is a graduate of Yale University Law School (1981).
