Join us in our third and final webinar in the the Environmental and Racial Justice Series hosted by Associate Professor Lisa Reyes Mason, Graduate School of Social Work at the University of Denver.
 
Part 3: Mobilizing Power for Action and Change
Achieving environmental and racial justice requires advocacy, activism and actual policy change at local, state, national and tribal levels. In the U.S., do we have a new window of opportunity to make change happen? How do we get there—urgently, critically and radically? And how do we build consensus among community members, grassroots organizations and legislators? Join us for a conversation with leading advocates, analysts and elected officials and walk away inspired, motivated and with tools for mobilizing power for environmental and racial justice.
