Environmental Justice Forum and Conversation
Do you care about the environment and the disproportional effect that poor environmental practices and policies have on the marginalized? If you answered yes, then this Forum is for you. Not only will you learn pertinent information, but your presence will also send a strong message to our legislators that we, as people of faith, are WATCHING and WE CARE.
Last year, environmental legislation got passed over or strongly diluted. This is unacceptable. We can send the message that WE DEMAND CHANGE! So, please attend this important Environmental Justice Forum and Conversation about the management of garbage in Connecticut. You’re encouraged to bring a friend or two (or more!) for an opportunity to learn, have your voice be heard, and send a strong message to our legislators.
Specific topics include an update on the status of the MIRA plant, an analysis of environmental justice legislation, and a review of the statewide Composting Pilot Program. The format involves brief presentations followed by Q & A with lawmakers and community leaders including Speaker of the House, Representative Matt Ritter, many other State Legislators, researchers, experts, and advocates.
This event is the result of collaboration led by Immanuel Congregational Church with AHCC, GHIAA, CT League of Conservation Voters and IREJN.
