Date / Time

Join the UIC Latino Cultural Center for a series of online conversations this fall with environmental and climate justice advocates from across the country and abroad. Their work reveals frameworks and solutions that utilize a justice and equity lens integrating social and economic issues to address toxic pollution and combat the climate crisis. Students in LALS 495/ ANTH 494/ MUSE 400 will facilitate the conversations.
Just Transition Alliance Executive Director José Bravo will talk about the principles of Just Transition and how climate justice and chemicals policy relate to communities fighting for environmental and labor justice.
Since 1991, José has gained recognition as a national and international leader in both the Environmental Justice and Climate Justice movements. Over the past 30 years as a community organizer, José has worked on numerous campaigns in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and México.
