South River Watershed Alliance presents a free community workshop--River of Opportunity: Community-led Restoration of South River and the Pursuit of Environmental Justice. The purpose of the workshop is to generate dialogue about current and historical disregard of urban waterways, streams, creeks and rivers in general and South River specifically, the lack of river restoration efforts in communities of color, and offer strategies on how to engage affected communities.
Confirmed panelists include Sharon Moran, PhD, Associate Professor and Coordinator of the Environmental and Natural Resources Policy Doctoral Program, Clark University; David Deganian, staff attorney with Greenlaw, an environmental and public interest law firm; and Johnny Waits, noted historian and curator of Flat Rock Archives. The workshop is free to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
