Environmental Justice Film and Speaker Series
presented by Roots and Shoots at Cornell University
History of the Series
The Environmental Justice Film and Speaker Series was started in the Fall of 2007. The idea for this series spun out of a student initiated Environmental Justice seminar that ran in Spring 2007 at Cornell University.
Members of Roots and Shoots who took the Spring seminar felt that continuing the discussion about EJ issues on campus was crucial because there are currently no permanent EJ class in the Cornell curriculum.
Attend EJ Series events and help us show the University that the Cornell and Ithaca communities want to hear more about EJ issues.
