Zoom Webinar - Achieving Environmental Justice in Wisconsin


 

What does it mean to achieve environmental justice in Wisconsin? We’ll discuss the basic principles of environmental justice, learn about some examples of this work in practice across the state, and discuss the challenges and how we can empower communities to reach identified goals. 

Julie Majerus is Wisconsin’s first policy advisor whose position is dedicated solely to the work of environmental justice. As the Environmental Justice Policy Advisor to the Secretary’s Office, her work includes leading agency-wide initiatives and alignment in the agency’s policy development and enhanced community outreach and engagement.

Meleesa Johnson is currently the Executive Director of WI Greenfire. She received her undergraduate degree in December 2000 from UWGB’s Environmental Policy and Planning Program. She has served on numerous boards for waste and recycling organizations and on several DNR study groups and technical advisory committees, including the PFAS External Advisory Committee. She also was a founding member of Wisconsin’s Green Fire’s Contaminants of Emerging Concern, a group that has spent the last four years focused on the PFAS issue.
