This session will focus on a key social justice issue, environmental justice. Environmental justice is about more than ‘toxic waste and race’.

Practitioners will discuss how their disciplines/careers intersect with environmental justice. Learn how stewards of the built environment (planners; designers; landscape architects; etc.) are advancing environmental justice as well as making a visible difference within communities.
