As climate change drives flooding, Wisconsin tribes face hard choices

Jan 02, 2019

As climate change continues to generate unprecedented flooding, it's often historically marginalized communities that suffer first and worst.

This NPR story recounts a relocation due to massive flooding in the community of Odanah, home to thousands of members of the Bad River Band of the Lake Superior Chippewa.

Wisconsin Conservation Voters is proud to have an office in Odanah. There, our First Nations Organizer Aurora Conley, who grew up in Bad River, works to bring the voice of First Nations communities into Wisconsin Conservation Voters campaigns, develop environmental leaders and connect northern communities with policy-making in the state capitol.
