Environmental Justice Panel – Feb. 1st

Environmental Justice Panel

The Graduate Environmental Policy Forum invites you to a panel discussion on local environmental justice issues and how you, as a UW student, staff, or faculty member can contribute to the work being done on these issues. Five panelists from the government, non-profit and academic sectors will talk about their experiences working on environmental justice issues in the region. Confirmed panelists include: Running Grass, EPA Region 10 Environmental Justice Program Manager; Professor Gregory Hicks, UW Law School; and Ticiang Diangson, Seattle Public Utilities Director of Environmental Justice and Service Equity.

The purpose of the event is to connect the UW campus community to environmental justice issues and we hope this event will stimulate further conversation and action on this issue at UW. The event will include plenty of time for audience questions and informal networking.

Panel questions: 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Question and answer: 7:30- 8:00 pm
