What exactly is environmental justice, and how can we advance it through the law in Washington and beyond?

Join us on November 2 for the third annual UW Environmental Law Symposium, featuring the latest research and promising avenues for achieving equitable environmental protection in our region. Register for this free event by October 31: https://cvent.me/9gQRG.

The symposium is hosted by the UW School of Law and co-sponsored by the UW Department of Environmental & Occupational Health Sciences. Other event co-sponsors are the UW Superfund Research Program, the UW Center for Exposures, Diseases, Genomics and Environment and the Washington Journal of Environmental Law & Policy.

The one-day gathering will draw together attorneys, community and environmental organizations, planners, policymakers and others to learn about research into disparate environmental impacts, the current state of federal and state environmental justice law and practices to foster equal engagement across different communities.
