By hosting a Climate Justice Forum, the Environmentalists of Color Collective at UCLA hopes to accomplish three things:
- Raise awareness about the contributions that people of color have made to the environmental sustainability movement
- Reframe the definition and values of mainstream environmentalism to be more inclusive of all underrepresented communities
- Stimulate critical dialogue about environmental racism and justice issues at UCLA and beyond.
The event will feature a speaking panel, keynote address, and workshop activities. Our panelists, representing various organizations across L.A., will talk about their work and life paths, which we will connect to the larger movement for environmental justice.
***DINNER IS PROVIDED*** All vegetarian. Please contact the organizer about dietary preferences/restrictions.
This event is free and open to the UCLA community and general public. Parking is available at the Sunset Village Parking Lot.
