Fireside Chat – Concerned Citizens of Cook County
Oct 10 11:00 am – 12:30 pm EDT
Over the summer Science for Georgia, Dogwood Alliance, Center for Black Women’s Wellness (CBWW), and Emory’s Center for Children’s Health Assessment, Research Translation, and Combating Environmental Racism (CHARTER) hosted the Environmental Justice & Climate Protection Conference.
Multiple organizations spoke about successful example community coalitions that are working to address environmental health and injustices, but there was not enough time for all the questions, comments, and discussion these brought.
This fireside chat series is to enable a deeper discussion. We aim to foster a conversation that raises awareness, inspires actions, and creates a path towards a healthier and more sustainable future for all.
