Voices from the Frontlines: A Showcase of Young Environmental Justice Leaders at Busboys & Poets
On Sunday night, come to Busboys and Poets to hear from young environmental justice leaders who are battling corporate polluters all across North America. Pollution and climate change disproportionately impact low-income communities and communities of color, and these young leaders are using grassroots organizing to stand up for their communities and
fight for real solutions. Come join an interactive and multimedia fishbowl discussion, featuring art and music, to learn from the young leaders leading the fight against Keystone XL, fighting for justice in the Gulf, and standing up to Big Coal in communities of color.
WHEN: Sunday, June 3, 6:30 - 9:00 PM
WHERE: Busboys & Poets, 5th & K
