John Filcher, author of “Red Herrings: A Cautionary Journey for Citizen Opposition Groups” was the guest speaker at WEAL’s Annual Meeting (via Zoom) on 11/11/2021. John’s presentation included a firsthand account of how an ordinary group of citizens banded together and formed “Incinerator Free Brown County” (IFBC) to fight against a proposed trash incinerator that was initially proposed in Ashwaubenon and later Green Bay. John described the many twists and turns IFBC faced during the several year campaign to stop the project. WEAL along with several environmental groups networked with IFBC were mentioned during the presentation and are cited in the book.
