Environmental Justice: An Advocate’s Triumph

Featuring a conversation with Huda Alkaff, Founder and Director, Wisconsin Green Muslims.

In 1991, over 1,000 people gathered in Washington, D.C. from 50 states for the First National People of Color Environmental Leadership Summit. The Summit, hosted by the United Church of Christ resulted in the 17 Principles of Environmental Justice and redefined the environmental movement. Thirty-one years later, due to the advocacy work of WI Green Muslims and others, Wisconsin opened a state Environmental Justice office earlier this year. Join us to hear why communities need environmental justice offices and what we might do to get one where we live.
