SOUTH DEKALB ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE TAKE ACTION FORUM AND LISTENING SESSION
Oct 28 10:00 am – 12:00 pm EDT
South DeKalb has long felt the effects of environmental racism, and now opportunities are aligning which could fund the remediation and future protection of these neighborhoods. We need the input from the community to guide these efforts to be productive and address the community needs.
New Life Community Alliance, State Representative Becky Evans, and Science for Georgia invite New Life members, DeKalb citizens, community, faith, healthcare, and business leaders and people who pay more than 6% of their income on power bills to an “Environmental Justice Take Action Forum and Listening Session” on Saturday, October 28, 2023.
We will be addressing these questions: How can the transition to a Clean Energy Economy benefit South DeKalb communities? What are the top environmental health concerns in our community, and what needs to be addressed over the next decade to create a healthier, thriving community? What resources can help over the next 10 years? What community and consumer resources are available for help now?
Walk-ins are welcome. But by registering, you ensure we have enough food.
This event will also be online – we will send a Zoom link before the meeting.
Refreshments & Resource Tabling: 9:30am
Forum and Listening Session: 10am to 12 Noon
