Environmental Justice Coalition
1189 Beall Ave.
Wooster, OH 44691
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.
Wednesdays from 8:30 -9:30 PM EST on teams (email us to be added to the group!). Check out our flipgrip to get to know us better!
