The Environmental Health and Justice Leadership Training (EHJLT) program introduces WE ACT members to environmental justice, environmental health, community organizing, and campaign work at large. After completing the training, participants of the EHJLT will be equipped with the appropriate knowledge and tools needed to organize campaigns or projects for WE ACT and/or the broader Environmental/Social Justice movement on their own.
The Spring 2016 program has now ended. Congratulations to the graduates! If you are interested in future programs, contact David Chang: firstname.lastname@example.org.
