Event Description

Advancing Environmental Justice: 2018 EJ Law & Policy Convening – Saturday, April 7 at 12pm 
Interested in advancing environmental justice? Join us at the 2018 EJ Law & Policy Convening: Advancing Environmental Justice on Saturday, April 7 from Noon to 6:15pm. The event will begin with lunch and will be divided into three panels with audience participation encouraged throughout the day. The convening looks to take a deep dive into environmental justice strategies in the Trump era. It begins with a panel on big picture ideas and is followed by discussions of civil rights strategies and capacity and coalition building for environmental justice work.
Students at the Yale Law School Environmental Justice Clinic and the Vermont Law School Environmental Justice Law Society have teamed up to organize the Convening to further a strategic conversation about legal and policy efforts to advance environmental justice. Its focus will be on environmental justice law and policy.
The convening will take place on Saturday April 7 at the School of Public Health at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut.  Panelists include community, academic, and government leaders and activists. Lunch will be provided.
The morning of the convening, we will also be taking a group to Fair Haven on an EJ Community Tour. The tour is led by Lee Cruz, Community Outreach Director for the Community Foundation of Greater New Haven. The tour will be an opportunity to learn about the community of Fair Haven and the environmental burdens they are dealing with, and the work they are doing to stand up for their community and their rights to a clean and healthy environment.
Registration is free and open to all but we ask that you register at the following link to assist our planning:
We hope that you can join us!

“It Has To Start With the Children”: Q&A With Juanita Woods

Rubinger Fellow Juanita Woods is a community development practitioner and city council member in Monroe, LA who specializes in helping people skill up to take on living-wage jobs with local employers. She spoke with LISC about her fellowship project to provide apprenticeships for young people, the challenges of wealth-building in historically underserved communities, and the inspiration she gets from empowering youth on their life journeys.

The Long Journey to a Healing Home

In honor of Veterans Day this year, we are highlighting Perry Point Veterans Village, an extraordinary supportive housing community for homeless vets created by HELP USA in tandem with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, NEF and many other dedicated partners. The development was 10 years in the making and involved a veritable high-wire act of aligning bureaucracies and funding sources and overcoming political opposition. The result is worth the struggle: 75 safe, affordable homes for veterans who'd been surviving on the streets and now have a bona fide new lease on life.

From Recidivism to Rebuilding Lives: Q&A With Kelly Orians

Kelly Orians is an attorney, a 2019 Rubinger Fellow and the co-director of the First 72+, a ground-breaking New Orleans re-entry program for people returning from incarceration. Orians spoke with LISC about the state of criminal justice in Louisiana, the challenges and successes her clients experience, and how her organization is helping lift the burden of entrenched bureaucracy and predatory debt that keeps so many people from gaining real freedom after release.
