Confluence is excited to cosponsor a series of free screenings of the award-winning documentary film Stewart Udall: The Politics of Beauty in Vancouver, WA and Astoria, OR. The film tells the story of Stewart Udall, a Democratic congressman from Arizona and former Secretary of Interior whose legacy is defined by his contributions to environmental conservation and social justice in the 1960sUdall was key in the passing of many landmark pieces of legislation such as the Endangered Species Preservation Act of 1966 and the Wilderness Act of 1964, and was responsible for the addition of a massive amount of public lands including national parks, historic monuments, recreational areas, and wildlife refuges. As a civil rights advocate, Udall used his platform to advocate for racial integration on public lands. After leaving public office, he went on to advocate for communities in Nevada affected by nuclear weapons testing and for Navajo workers impacted by uranium mining.
