We welcome you to join a diverse group of engaged EJ educators and community leaders as we listen, share, and deepen our learning and connections with each other around best practices and approaches for teaching environmental justice in our institutions and communities. All are welcome, even if you have never taught EJ before! This event will be virtual and those who RSVP will receive the information to connect on the day of the event.
We’ll begin with an EJ Educator panel from 9-10:30 a.m., featuring nationally renowned EJ teachers Dr. David Pellow and Dr. Julie Sze, as well as Adriana Fernandez of Nuestra Casa's EJ Parent Academy, among others!
