  • Registration link: Click here
  • Campus: Off Campus
  • Event Type: Public

The University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg and the Westmoreland Diversity Coalition are partnering again this fall to host their Growth Through Knowledge and Understanding speaker series. This year, the speakers will focus on the topic of Environmental Justice. This event will be presented by Lee Dingus of the Echoes of the Four Directions.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines Environmental Justice as “the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income, with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies.” It follows that if all people are going to be treated with dignity and respect, they need to have access to healthy and sustainable environments while recognizing that official policy and procedures have not been equitable for all populations.

For additional information on the series, contact Carlotta Paige, founder and co-chair of the Westmoreland Diversity Coalition, at westmorelanddiversitycoalition@gmail.com, or Al Thiel, director of the Student Center and Student Involvement at Pitt-Greensburg, at ajt58@pitt.edu. Both are co-chairing the series.
