Collective Voices Solidarity Series: Social and Climate Justice Panel

How will you impact climate and social justice? Come learn more about the efforts of POC community leaders who are working to advance environmental justice in their communities and beyond. The panel will also be discussing the intersectional nature of environmental activism, and the importance of centering communities of color in climate activism. Together, we will discuss current concerns, strategies, and radical hopes for the future through each panelist’s relative experience working for organizations like Renew Oregon, Growing Gardens, the City of Portland, and OHSU.

This panel will be moderated by Danielle Jones, STEM pathways program coordinator, OHSU and will include:
