Virtual Environmental Justice Pathways Summit

Friday, April 9 at 10:00am

Virtual Event

Join us for the first Virtual Environmental Justice Pathways Summit taking place on APRIL 9th & 10th 2021. This event is sponsored by Beyond Toxics and the Eugene - Springfield NAACP.

Leaders and representatives from frontline communities will join with scholars, students, policymakers, institutions, and NGOs to hold critical conversations around Oregon’s leadership on policies and investments capable of addressing environmental justice concerns across our state. The summit will host renowned national and state speakers, and create space for interactive discussions, workshops and organizational meetings with the goal of creating a collaborative network and policy guidelines dedicated to Environmental Justice in the state of Oregon.

Framing the Oregon Environmental Justice Pathways Summit – 2021:

  • What are unique and location-relevant solutions for distinct Oregon communities emerging from those striving for Environmental Justice that can reshape the political-economic structure behind injustices in Oregon?
  • How and at what scale should we confront challenges specific to creating Climate change impacts, unequal distribution of costs and benefits, and ensuring a just transition of fossil fuels?
