Social Justice Committee: Ellen Pimentel Julie Clements Nellie Zapien Christina Lewis

In this talk, Ellen will provide our members with an update on the activity of the Chapter’s Social Justice Committee, including ways you can get involved. Topics will include community outreach and partnerships, membership projects, environmental justice advocacy, and intersectional environmentalism. The goal of the Social Justice Committee is to cultivate equity and inclusion in our chapter and the communities we serve, so that we may all enjoy a just and safe chapter that is as inclusive and diverse as our region.
