Does your organization do Environmental Justice work in Ohio? Would you like an opportunity to deepen your understanding of how Environmental Justice relates to Racial Justice? How much more could you do if you could connect with more volunteers in your area who want to get involved? Let’s connect the dots between protecting our planet, racial justice, and the power structures that continually bring injustice to the people of Ohio.
Saturday, August 7th at 10am, three expert panelists will share their thoughts on Environmental Justice, how that relates to Racial Justice and what we can do about it here in Ohio. The panelist discussion will be followed by an opportunity for connection between Unitarian Universalists, other like-minded faith communities and Environmental Justice advocates.
Gather in community and expand your connections so we can all work together for a healthier, more inclusive Ohio. Register now at http://bit.ly/environmentaljusticeppp.
