The “Just By Nature” environmental activism event with the Little Village Environmental Justice Organization’s Executive Director, Kim Wasserman, has been rescheduled for Wednesday Nov. 9th. Please join us from 4:00pm-5:30pm in the Sullivan Room on the Second Floor of the Auditorium Building at RU’s Chicago Campus (425 S. Wabash Ave. in downtown Chicago). Light refreshments will be served.

Kim Wasserman will give a talk entitled “The Displacement of Environmental Justice,” which focuses on efforts made by LVEJO and the Little Village community to further sustainability efforts in their area. One of these victories includes shutting down both the Crawford and Fisk coal-fired power plants, which for years have heavily polluted the Little Village and Pilsen Community.

For more information, please contact Dr. Bethany Barratt, Director of the Joseph Loundy Human Rights Project (bbarratt@roosevelt.edu).
