Environmental Justice Training - Silver Springs, Florida
How can people of faith work for environmental justice for all? How can we create Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Beloved Community--one that is sustainable, healthy, and inclusive? This “train the trainer” workshop will explore these questions with the goal of empowering conversation and actions around environmental justice that will continue far beyond the initial workshop. In addition to discussing issues and viewing the film Renewal, participants will take a field trip to learn more in-depth about environmental justice issues specific to their setting. Open to adults from college through retirement.
The Environmental Justice Training will be offered March 25-27, 2014 at Christian Church Conference Center in Silver Springs, Florida.
