About this Event

The SU Alumni Sustainability Coalition is hosting a follow-up community meeting to their first event in July on Black Lives Matter & Environmental Justice.

The Seattle University Alumni Association and the SU Alumni Coalition for Sustainability Justice are pleased to welcome Maria Batayola from El Centro de la Raza to join us for this event.

Maria will talk about the intersections of environmental and health injustice and climate change and the adverse health effects of air and noise pollution that residents of Seattle's south end experience.

Following Maria's presentation the Sustainability Coalition will facilitate a question and answer session with attendees.

All Seattle University alumni, students, faculty, staff and community members are invited and welcome to attend!

The event will take place on Wednesday, August 19th from 12:00-1:30 p.m. PST.
