Green Roots Discussion w/ Rep. Harper, Heather Miller & Kim Wasserman

  • The Joyce Foundation 321 N Clark St. Chicago, IL 60654 (map)

MWRD Commissioner Josina Morita will moderate a discussion with Rep. Sonya Harper, LVEJO Executive Director Kim Wasserman, and American Indian Center Executive Director Heather Miller about their “Green Roots.”  While the term "Green" is new, communities of color have always been green-historically and culturally.  How communities of color talk, live and act green is often different and disconnected from the mainstream environmental community.  We will identify key language, processes and principles that are essential to building bridges and advancing a collective environmental justice agenda.
