Beyond Portlandia: Environmental Justice

Explore your new home through learning and service. Connect with advocates in Portland, a historically “green” city, working to ensure that all communities benefit from local environmental sustainability efforts. Examine tactics related to urban agriculture, food security, and mass transportation. Participants should come ready to learn from new perspectives, get their hands dirty & share some delicious locally-grown food.
