About the Cafe
Are you interested in working at the intersection of environmentalism and civil rights? If so, then a career in environmental justice may be right for you. Environmental justice focuses on the way certain populations of people are impacted by ecological decisions such as the construction of dams or where toxic waste is stored. This café will discuss Tatiana Height’s journey to working in environmental justice and opportunities for the audience to get engaged in the work or even chart a working path into the field.
