CLIMATE JUSTICE CONFERENCE RETREAT
The CLIMATE JUSTICE RETREAT will bring together policy analysts and activists to link a social justice discussion about approaches for solving the climate crisis. Special guest Bill Gallegos, long time environmental justice advocate and Executive Director of Communities
for A Better Environment will help us frame how we can make our voices heard. This is for grassroots and community leaders who want to learn more about the equity and social justice issues of climate change. We will discuss how families and communities are being impacted by
current climate change polices and look at what type of solutions can benefit grassroots and environmental justice communities. We will strategize for solutions that work for our communities and are based on a principle of social justice. The retreat is being held at Wilder
Forest which is a short 40 minutes from Minneapolis, and 30 minutes from St. Paul. Lunch and snacks are included in the registration fee.
