Dickinson College: Environmental Justice in PA
April 6 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm
On April 6, Dickinson College is hosting a free event to discuss challenges and opportunities related to your health, pollution exposure, and access to food.
Marginalized communities across Pennsylvanian are disproportionately exposed to environmental hazards and have
historically been excluded from or underrepresented in environmental justice activities. Environmental justice means that all are included in the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental regulations, laws, and policies. EJ in PA aims to educate and empower residents regarding environmental justice issues throughout Pennsylvania. The goals for the event are to encourage conversation and create connection among community members to identify actions and outcomes that will be supported through resources and networking after the event through a group of EJ community hubs.
The event’s keynote speaker is Mustafa Santiago, Vice President of Environmental Justice, Climate, and Community
Revitalization, National Wildlife Federation.
