The environmental justice movement has been foundational in the longstanding fight for equity and equality in the U.S. for decades. Today, environmental injustice continues to be a topic of growing importance and salience for people both internationally and domestically. In an attempt to provide a wide-reaching introduction to the multi-faceted environmental justice movement, Duke University presents the first of many student-led environmental justice symposiums to come.
This EJ symposium is a two-day virtual speaker event beginning on March 19th that will feature a series of talks given by experts working at the intersection of people, planet, and justice. It hosts speakers from all around the globe and hopes to bring a new-found appreciation for the scope of this movement to all who participate.
Join us for the first in many events to focus on environmental justice themes and issues at Duke University.
