Saturday, January 20
The North Carolina Black Alliance is thrilled to announce the 2024 Environmental Injustice and Healthcare Summit: Grounded in Justice, Rooted in Wellness. The #EJHSummit will occur on Saturday, January 20, at the Franklinton Center at Bricks 281 Southbend Lane, Whitakers, NC. The summit offers a unique opportunity for environmental justice and healthcare advocates to come together and collaborate on strategies that specifically impact OUR communities. Focusing on the challenges faced by those often displaced and disrespected, this convening gives voice to important issues that too often go unheard.
Looking ahead to the coming year, it’s clear that mobilizing informed voters is more important than ever. We must work to demystify the narratives surrounding issues like healthcare access, voting rights, dirty corporations, and clean jobs, all of which significantly impact the health and safety of Black and Brown communities. By coming together at events like the Environmental Injustice and Healthcare Summit, we can build a better, more equitable future for all.
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, the $89 conference registration has been discounted so that you can participate at no cost.
