Michigan Environmental Justice Summit  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

The Michigan Environmental Justice Coalition (MEJC) is convening a summit to bring together groups and individuals from throughout the state who seek to achieve a clean, healthy and safe environment for Michiganders by working with all residents to hold public and private institutions accountable to the communities for whom they serve and in which they operate. This summit will provide perspectives and stories on environmental justice (EJ) organizing and policy in Michigan and will lead to greater connections among organizers, community leaders, researchers, and government. This summit seeks to motivate future EJ summits in Michigan.

The planning organizations include member organizations of MEJC: Detroiters Working for Environmental Justice; East Michigan Environmental Action Council; Ecology Center; Green Door Initiative; Michigan Environmental Council; NAACP of Southeastern Michigan; National Wildlife Federation; Sierra Club Environmental Justice Program; Michigan State University; Southwest Detroit Community Benefits Coalition; Urban Regeneration LLC; & Zero Waste Detroit; in collaboration with the Sustainable Michigan Endowed Project; the University of Michigan School of Natural Resources and Environment; The University of Michigan Provost's Office, Idle No More Michigan; and West Michigan Environmental Action Council.
