You’ve probably seen the Academy Award-winning movie starring Julia Roberts, but this is the story of the REAL Erin Brockovich. Here in Boston to speak to a charity called Find The Cause, Erin agreed to this exclusive interview with Candy O’Terry. Once a single mom without a job, Erin Brockovich began working as a law clerk at a small law firm in Hinkley, California. Although she had no legal experience, Erin knew something was very wrong when people and animals started getting very sick and dying. It was discovered that Pacific Gas & Electric had been polluting the water supply with hexavalent chromium for decades. Erin’s intuition and perseverance helped to win the victims in this case 333 million dollars in 1996, making it the largest settlement ever paid in a direct-action lawsuit in the United States. Erin has devoted her life to uncovering lies and deception as a fearless environmental activist. Her passion to do what she does is rooted in her Kansas upbringing, the challenges of dyslexia and the life lessons she learned from her parents.
