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: https://goo.gl/forms/0KZsCe9FmgNeVfJE3
 
We hope that you can join us!
 
Sincerely,
Yale Law School Environmental Justice Clinic

In Pursuit of a Shared Humanity

LISC stands in unity with the protests that are sweeping our country, and their core message—that every life is sacred, says Maurice A. Jones, LISC’s president and CEO, in a video message. We are committed, he affirms, to continuing the work to dismantle structural racism and create an equitable America for all.

We Have Reached the Housing Cliff

As we look back on Affordable Housing Month, marked every year in May, it's clear that the need for safe, affordable housing—as well as the threats to providing it—have never been more acute. Denise Scott, LISC's EVP for Programs, makes a compelling case for why, during the Covid era and beyond, we need a robust national plan to safeguard homes for all of our country's vulnerable residents, as well as for the organizations that make those homes possible.

Our Communities Need a Marshall Plan

In his latest video message, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones reflects on the disproportionate health and economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on underinvested communities and communities of color, and calls for a 21st-century Marshall Plan—intensive and broad investment that will both help people and enterprises recover, and redress the inequities that set the stage for the fallout of the current crisis.
