Boalt Hall School of Law
Transforming Our Communities: An Inclusive Approach to Environmental Justice
JOIN US on Friday, March 11, 2005 at the Boalt Hall School of Law on the UC Berkeley campus to explore such issues as:
•Why are schools being built next to Superfund sites?
•How are we fighting for clean air in the San Joaquin Valley?
•Why are the majority of new industrial facilities sited in poor and minority communities?
PARTICIPATE in a forum of open dialogue with scholars, policy makers, activists, community organizers, students, and environmental lawyers who will discuss their work on everything from environmental policy to grass roots, community-based struggles against industrial pollution. The day-long forum will also serve as a brainstorming session for effective strategies and creative new directions for the movement's success.
