It’s time for Eugene to talk about environmental justice. 350 Eugene, Beyond Toxics, the NAACP and Stand Up for Racial Justice are joining in partnership to host an Environmental Justice Town Hall.
From the Baxter Power Plant in West Eugene, rendering the soil unsafe for growing food, to the City’s need to adequately incorporate climate justice recommendations made by community members from the Equity Panel into the Climate Action Plan, environmental injustice is rampant in our community. The time for action is now.
This town hall features a panel on local environmental equity issues, followed by breakout groups that focus on how climate activists can engage with local environmental justice issues. Together, we will share resources, identify and organize next steps to take together.
When: Tuesday, March 10th, 6:30 to 8:30 pm
Where: Campbell Community Center, 155 High Street, Eugene
What: Climate Town Hall – Organizing for Environmental Justice
