When it comes to industrial pollution and health hazards, an ever-increasing amount of research shows that low-income and communities of color bear the burden, threatening their health and well-being. Environmental Justice communities are at the center of the global distribution of goods, along with many other sources of pollution.
The Moving Forward conference will bring together organizers, advocates, regulators, developers, industry, planners, and policymakers. These leaders are working in and with communities to share lessons, craft strategies, and build skills, and they commit to moving forward together to build power and change conditions in communities across the globe. This FREE two-day conference will feature discussions and strategy sessions, including best practices and zero emission technology, as well as capacity building workshops in organizing, research, communications, social media, policy, and planning.
