Event description

Description

The State Coastal Conservancy invites the San Francisco Estuary Partnership and the SF Bay Water Quality Control Board to join us for our EJ/Cultural Competency brown bag workshop.

This training is meant to provide a historical context of the Environmental Justice (EJ) movement in the Bay Area. Trainers will describe concepts, language, and key EJ communities in the region, along with helpful tips on reducing conflict in collaborative efforts with communities, and developing authentic community-led partnerships. This training incorporates role-play games, small group discussions, and a minor lecture component. Participants will walk away with the tools required to effectively engage communities for productive and sustainable collaborative relationships in the planning process.

Trainers: Ms. Margaret Gordon and Brian Beveridge, of the West Oakland Environmental Indicators Project (WOEIP) have worked with communities in West Oakland to address the Port of Oakland's air pollution problem, and have trained professionals throughout the state and the country on effective community-based participatory research strategies and social inclusion. WOEIP supports residents living on toxic soil, with heavy concentrations of diesel particulate in the air they breathe, to bring their diverse voices to land use planning decisions.
