Conference on Environmental Justice: Where Are We Now?

Join the Harvard Environmental Law Society for a national conference on environmental justice on March 28–29, 2014. The conference will focus on three themes: progress on the goals of environmental justice, the social justice aspects of today’s national and international environmental movements, and strategies to ensure that environmental justice is a priority in future environmental work. Some of the conference highlights will include: • A keynote address by Former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, • A plenary address by the “father of environmental justice” Dr. Robert Bullard, • An interview with Professor Gerald Torres, who, as counsel to the Attorney General, drafted the President’s Executive Order on Environmental Justice, and • Listening sessions with the Environmental Protection Agency on how to move forward on environmental justice over the next 20 years.…
