Environmental Justice: Exploring the Intersection of Waste, Race, and Health (Virtual)

November 3, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Environmental justice is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income with respect to the development, implementation and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations and policies.

Join Tia Nelson, internationally recognized environmental steward and daughter of Earth Day founder Gaylord Nelson, as she highlights the history of environmental policy in Wisconsin and explores the challenges and opportunities to create equitable environmental policy.

Explore issues around access to clean water and ways in which leaders like  Gary Besaw (Menominee, Bear Clan), Director of the Menominee Tribal Department of Agriculture and Food Systems and the Menominee Tribal Food Distribution Department, and Brenda Coley, Co-Executive Director of Milwaukee Water Commons, take on industry, apathy, and entrenched inequality to ensure access to clean water in their communities.

Register to get access to the Zoom session.
This program is free and open to the public.
