April was Awe-Inspiring

OMG it’s already May?

The legislative session has ended but at Science for Georgia, we just can’t stop the rockin’

In case you don’t want to read all the way to the end of this blog. TL;DR:

Also – our EJ Map was featured on WABE! Check it out.

April is Earth Month, and we did a lot of amazing things in celebration of the plant.

We hosted a Climate Survival Training on bike repair. We tabled at both the Center for Black Women’s Wellness and the South Fulton Earth Day events. We participated in two community days of action – one at Georgia State’s Community Garden and one to clean out Ormewood Park.

We said goodbye to a fabulous crop of interns – check out their amazing work here. Some of it has already been incorporated into our work, and over the summer it will be integrated into Science Lookup, toolkits, and informational pages. To that we will add the fabulous work of our Emory Quantitative Theory and Methods (QTM) capstone students!

I can’t wait to show environmental health pictures as part of our ongoing efforts in S. DeKalb, S. Fulton, and Augusta.

Coming up in May – we’ll start our next batch of amazing interns. We have a special May the Forth edition of Jazz Hands at Hendershots in Athens. And we have a Georgia Science Junction on Ranked Choice Voting – come learn what all the fuss is about.

As we look into the future – I hope to see as many of you as possible at our  Environmental Justice and Climate Protection Conference in Savannah. The last two hosted over 100+ people each time. Connections were made. Community projects were started. And legislative coalitions were formed. Come be a part of the change!

Thank you for all that you do to make Science Matter Here. Your support of Science for Georgia is invaluable, and I am honored to be part of something so amazing.
