Environmental Justice Workshop

January 9 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE: Take Steps Today For Lasting Change

The tenets of environmental justice hold that all people everywhere should have access to a healthy and thriving environment. Further, all people should be able to live in freedom from environmental dangers. But is this achievable on a planet (and in a country) where people continue to buy huge houses and cars, produce multiple children and purchase products with no thought to their production cycle or packaging? Daily we hear threats to environmental protections in the United States and beyond, what can we do as concerned and committed citizens to protect humanities’ right to a healthy environment?

In this one-day workshop, you will hear from the following Environmental Justice experts:

Sarah Bexell, Visiting Clinical Associate Professor in DU’s Graduate School of Social Work (GSSW), and Director of Humane Education with the Institute for Human-Animal Connection

Pranietha Mudliar, Postdoctoral Fellow in Environmental Justice and Sustainability with the Interdisciplinary Incubator for the Study of (In)equality (IRISE) as at DU

Kristi Roybal, Doctoral Student in DU’s Graduate School of Social Work

Scott MacDonald, Program Coordinator at GreenLeaf and GSSW alumnus

Nola Miguel, Director at GES Coalition, Organizing for Health and Housing Justice

Andrea Savage, Program Coordinator at Groundwork Denver
