“Urgency” is the word Jule Asterisk uses to describe why the Keepers of the Athabasca came to be 10 years ago.
Urgency to address the cumulative impacts of environmental disasters.
Urgency to gain perspectives from and protect those closest to the land, and those who derive sustenance from the land.
Urgency to address the constant challenge of existing toxic sites and the creation of new hazards.
Urgency to protect the community and give people a voice in combatting further health threats and environmental destruction.
