We are excited to announce a new set of Environmental Health & Justice Leadership Training classes for adults, starting February 8th. Participants in this four-course (see below) online training program will learn about environmental and climate justice issues and how to advocate for equitable solutions to address them. There are no prerequisites for these courses, and they are open to anyone 15 years and older. There is no cost, either, though we encourage you to make a donation to help us continue the program and give others the same opportunity. And we ask that if you do sign up, you honor your commitment to attend all the sessions because space is limited and demand is high. Register Here
