Record Symposium Crowd

Last Updated: 09-23-18

Environmental activist Erin Brockovich drew a record Sunday Symposium crowd of 250 on Sept.23 at the Berger Center, where she urged individuals  to become involved in community issues because “Superman is never going to show up.”

Brockovich was instrumental in building a case against the Pacific Gas & Electric Co. (PG&E) in 1993. Her successful lawsuit was the subject of a 2000 film, “Erin Brockovich,” which starred Julia Roberts. Since then, Brockovich has become a media personality herself.

The program was the third of the Sunday Symposium’s new season in its temporary new home at the Berger. (Photo by Jim Brewer)
