Jan. 12: Libraries, museums host community conversation on environmental justice

Grassroots movements have been the backbone of environmental justice.

From the Flint water crisis to air quality issues in Detroit, the people of southeast Michigan have a long history of standing up for people and the environment. As community spaces, how do you think museums, libraries, and other cultural institutions should support local environmental justice movements?

This forum was designed by Jade Marks of the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History and Justin Schell of the University of Michigan Library through the Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC) Public Interest Technology Community Innovation Fellowship (PITCIF). Learn more about environmental justice, this project, and our values, by reading our mission below and visiting About the Project.

The forum runs Tuesday, Jan. 12 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time: https://umich.zoom.us/j/99155443239
