In early June 2005, the annual United Nations' World Environment Day will take place in San Francisco, featuring five days of exciting cultural and artistic events, special workshops and community discussions focused on improving conditions in our thriving urban centers.

Circle of Life, the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, Sustainable Village Enterprises, and the Sustainable World Coalition is co-hosting a panel and interactive community discussion entitled "Bridging the Social Justice & Environmental Movements: Now Is the Time."

WHEN: Friday, June 3, 1 - 4:30 pm

WHERE: Southeast Community Facility, Alex L. Pitcher Community Room, 1800 Oakdale Ave, San Francisco

People across the globe are experiencing the impacts of development in their communities and on their local environments. What do people affected by these changes have to say? This civic gathering will provide a forum for people to relay their experiences and place them in the context of how we can learn to work together more effectively and powerfully to build the just and sustainable world we all want to live in.

By recognizing new possibilities for mutual collaboration, we can move ahead toward common goals and objectives. This means actively meeting and strategizing together, learning from one another's experiences, collaborating on vital projects, and looking at the bigger context and areas of intersection between social justice and environmental protection. Come join Julia Butterfly Hill, Van Jones, selected international mayors, and Bayview Hunters Point residents for a lively panel discussion, followed by small group interactions with the presenters.

To RSVP for this event, please contact Paul Liotsakis at (415) 637-2339 or at liotsakis@yahoo.com.
