Join us for our first Virtual Environmental Justice Pathways Summit taking place on
APRIL 9th & 10th 2021. 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.
This year we are partnering with Climate Change and Indigenous Peoples (CCIP). This is an annual event that hosts Indigenous scholars, students, and community members to exchange ideas, methodologies and research related to culture, sovereignty and indigenous peoples. It is our hope that this partnership will allow us to further center Tribes and Indigenous voices in the Environmental Justice movement here in Oregon. Visit their webpage here.
