SEAS 2020 Michigan Environmental Justice Summit

The School for Environment and Sustainability honors the 30th Anniversary of the “Incidence of Environmental Hazards Conference,” which helped put environmental justice (EJ) on the national radar for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Building on the momentum of the 1990 conference, the University of Michigan soon became the first university to establish environmental justice as an academic field of study. Join us for a dynamic discussion with our panel of environmental justice game-changers:

- Robert Bullard, 'Father of Environmental Justice"; named one of 13 Environmental Leaders of the Century by Newsweek

- Rhiana Gunn-Wright, Policy Director, New Consensus; An architect of the Green New Deal

- Charles Lee, Senior Policy Advisor, EPA; EJ pioneer and principal author of the landmark report, Toxic Wastes and Race in the United States

- Regina Strong, Environmental Justice Public Advocate, Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy

- Michelle Martinez (MS '08), Panel Moderator; Coordinator, Michigan Environmental Justice Coalition, Detroit-based EJ activist, speaker, writer, and mother
