Join the UIC Latino Cultural Center for a series of online conversations this fall with environmental and climate justice advocates from across the country and abroad. Their work reveals frameworks and solutions that utilize a justice and equity lens integrating social and economic issues to address toxic pollution and combat climate crisis. Students in LALS 495/ ANTH 494/ MUSE 400 will facilitate the conversations.

Just Transition Alliance Executive Director Jose Bravo will focus on just transition, climate justice and chemicals policy as they relate to communities fighting for Environmental Justice and Labor Justice.

Since 1991, José has gained recognition as a national and international leader in both the Environmental Justice and Climate Justice movements. Over the past 30 years as a community organizer José has worked on numerous campaigns in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and México.
