6-8 PM (Pacific Time)
Join us for an open session featuring leaders on the cutting edge of environmental justice and public health from California to Flint, Michigan! Learn how environmental justice groups influenced first-of-their-kind state laws in California that institutionalized policies to recognize cumulative impacts of multiple stressors, invest in impacted communities, and focus on justice.
Hear from the public health pediatrician who brought the drinking water crisis in Flint to national attention and who continues to fight for justice – a story told in her new book, What the Eyes Don’t See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City .
Attend the Town Hall to hear from Environmental Justice Leaders:
- Diane Takvorian, Executive Director, Environmental Health Coalition, San Diego, California
- Arsenio Mataka, Special Assistant to Attorney General Becerra, California Department of Justice
- Luis Olmedo, Executive Director, Comité Civico del Valle, Brawley, California
- Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, Founder and Director, Michigan State University and Hurley Children’s Hospital Pediatric Public Health Initiative, will also share her insights into the drinking water crisis in Flint.
