Environmental Justice Coalition

Our mission is to actively investigate and educate on the intersection of environmental and social issues and advocate for those affected by them. We work to cultivate climate resiliency on our campus and advocate for the college to fight against forces causing climate change and environmental injustices. We aim to raise awareness about the communities disproportionately affected by environmental catastrophes and collaborate with organizations that share our goals. Community building is crucial in the fight for climate justice and so we work toward fostering strong, diverse relationships and community in our organization, student body, Wooster, and beyond.

Meeting Information
