Toxic Beauty: Environmental Justice and Workers' Rights

The Belfer Center's Environment and Natural Resource Project invites you for a conversation about promoting environmental justice and workers' rights, especially in underserved communities and with workers in often invisible positions. We will discuss these issues from the perspective of community organizing, law and advocacy, and government regulation and policy – with a focus on opportunities to collaborate across sectors.

Julia Liou, Planning and Development Director, Asian Health Services

Matthew Tejada, Director of the Office of Environmental Justice, US Environmental Protection Agency

Natalicia Tracy, Executive Director, Brazilian Worker Center & Brazilian Policy Center

Trip van Noppen, President, EarthJustice
