Environmental Justice Organizing Training
Join our first ever Environmental Justice Organizing training! Through this training we aim to enable and empower our community to act and want to create grassroots community organizing to influence policy makers to improve environmental and health outcomes for Beacon Hill residents. Beacon Hill is surrounded by major roadways where Aircraft fly over us every 90 seconds causing air and noise pollution. Air pollution can cause health impacts such as asthma, lung cancer, respiratory diseases, and more. Noise pollution can lead to higher stress levels, less sleep, cardiovascular health, and reduction in learning capabilities. Yet our community is located in a spot where we are not eligible for mitigation to help manage these issues. Where you live, your income, race or language ability shouldn’t determine how healthy you are. However, that is the sad reality and low-income communities, and communities of Color continue to be disproportionately harmed by Environmental Issues that may lead to major health impacts.
Join us through this training course where, we aim to develop and promote environmental justice leadership, education, and community organizing. We will focus on topics such as the environmental justice movement, environmental racism, climate change, air and noise pollution, community organizing and more! We hope to enable and empower our community to take action and want to create grassroots community organizing to influence policy makers to improve environmental and health outcomes for Beacon Hill residents.
