With hundreds of activists, community leaders and experts coming together to share, learn and connect, there’s no better place to be than the Local Environmental Action Conference on Saturday, March 3 at 9am at Northeastern University.
For more than 30 years, hundreds of people have come together to learn, connect and be inspired, and this year is no different. The Toxics Action Center and the Mass Climate Action Network are excited to offer workshops on everything from how to fix the grid, to the intersections between toxic chemicals and reproductive justice, to how to build coalitions with allies in the labor movement.
This is an opportunity to learn new ideas, build skills, and strengthen our movement. Join community leaders, environmental justice advocates and activists from across the region and get inspired for the work ahead.
Green Newton is a proud co-sponsor of this event.
Organizers are offering 16 workshops where you can meet other activists working on your issue, learn something new, and build skills to take your group’s campaign to the next level. Our workshops include:
- Activism is a Team Sport!: How Demystifying Group Dynamics Can Help You Win
- Justice for Puerto Rico: Environmental Racism, Just Transition and the Vision for a Just Recovery
- The Herstory of Reproductive Justice: Expanding our Social Justice Calling
- #DeeperThanWater: Confronting Systemic Racism and Mass Incarceration through the Lens of Water Justice
