Last week, for the first time ever, people living in the communities surrounding Tularosa Basin were given a chance to express their concerns about radiation exposure from the Trinity nuclear test. Over 200 people congregated to discuss their experiences and concerns with Senator Tom Udall.

Senator Udall is working with the community to take the matter to Washington D.C. in the hopes of making a change. Read more about the story by clicking here.
