Summer 2023 Adult Environmental Health and Justice Leadership Training

We created our award-winning Environmental Health and Justice Leadership Training program (EHJLT) in 2002 to help develop leaders who can advocate on behalf of their community, tailoring programs for both youth and adult participants. The pandemic made EHJLT a challenge, but this summer we are once again able to offer a series of in-person courses, and are excited to see you all in our office once again!

There are no prerequisites for these courses, and they are open to anyone 15 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. Sign-Up Today!

ALL DATES ARE IN PERSON at WE ACT’S HQ: 1854 Amsterdam Avenue, 2nd floor, New York, NY 10031 (at the corner of West 152nd Street).
