Environmental Health and Justice Leadership Training

The Environmental Health and Justice Leadership Training (EHJLT) introduces WE ACT members to environmental justice, environmental health, community organizing, and campaign work to prepare more leaders from Northern Manhattan for advocacy work. After completing the training, participants of the EHJLT are equipped with the knowledge and tools needed to organize campaigns or projects for WE ACT and/or broader environmental/social justice movements on their own.

Due to our limited class size, admission to the training is based on an application process. Northern Manhattan residents and people of color are particularly encouraged to apply.

Our Summer 2018 program, which features bilingual classes being taught at the NYCHA Dyckman Senior Center, is already underway and therefore closed for applications. If you are interested in applying for future courses or would like additional information, please email ehjlt@weact.org.
