Enacting Climate Justice: a discussion with Michael Méndez, Regina Strong and Michelle Martinez

Afterwards there will be a panel discussion exploring issues of climate justice in Michigan and how to center justice in Michigan’s climate action plans. Ms. Regina Strong, Environmental Justice Public Advocate for EGLE, and Ms. Michelle Martinez, Director of the Tishman Center for Social Justice and the Environment, will participate in the panel discussion and share insights from government and activist experiences.
