Beatrice Brailsford currently serves as the Nuclear Program Director for the Snake River Alliance, a nuclear watchdog agency. She was born and raised in Buhl, Idaho, and graduated from Cornell University. Since joining the Alliance staff in 1989, Beatrice has served on state and federal environmental advisory committees, speaks to and writes for a wide range of audiences, has served as a peer reviewer for a number of publications on nuclear issues, and represents the Alliance in the Alliance for Nuclear Accountability.
At this month's Political Soup luncheon hosted by the Bannock County Democrats on Wednesday, June 10, Beatrice will speak about issues of nuclear waste in Idaho. Her talk will include a discussion of the ongoing cleanup efforts at the Idaho National Laboratory, current problems with shipments of nuclear waste into and out of the state, and what is happening at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) in New Mexico and what that means for Idaho.
This Political Soup event will be held at the headquarters of the Bannock County Democrats, 355 Yellowstone Ave., across the street from Mama Inez restauraunt on Yellowstone in Pocatello, with parking in the back of the building (please do not park alongside adjacent businesses). Food will be served and a small donation is appreciated.
