Online Panel Discussion on Environmental Justice

November 15, 2020 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 am

Panel on Environmental Racism

On Sunday, Nov 15th at 3pm Glendale Environmental Coalition will host an online panel titled “Environmental Racism and Climate Justice in Glendale” moderated by Dr. Michael Méndez, a professor of environmental policy and planning at the University of California, Irvine, with local Glendale activists Ash Rosas, former hub coordinator for Sunrise Movement LA; Alek Bartrosouf, co-founder of Walk Bike Glendale; and Tanita Harris-Ligons, co-founder of Black in Glendale. The panel will explore the intersection of environmental harms with social justice and explore questions of how to address equity issues in Glendale.

Topics to be explored include what the term “environmental justice” means, the environmental justice issues that are of the greatest concern in our community today, who is most likely to suffer the effects of environmental racism, and how all members of our community can help alleviate environmental justice impacts.
