The “Increasing Capacity for Advocacy: Lessons Learned from Environmental Justice Projects Focused on Community Health” Workshop is an interactive training on successful strategies to advocate for basic amenities and the struggle to achieve environmental equity.

By the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Explain lessons learned from community-engaged research projects that build capacity for policy advocacy
  • Identify strategies that strengthen advocacy for environmental justice
  • Describe two communities in North Carolina who have addressed environmental justice and public health issues successfully through academic and community partnerships.
