ACE is partnering with Toxics Action Center to hold an Environmental Action 2011 event on March 12, 2011, along with Environment Massachusetts, Massachusetts Climate Action Network, Clean Water Action, MASSPIRG and MLEV. An ACE team (Whitney, a youth organizer, Gene and Staci, attorneys) will present a panel about air quality. The conference will bring together community activists, organizers, and scientific experts to network, collaborate, and strategize about hot environmental issues.
We invite you to come and learn, collaborate and be inspired at Environmental Action 2011! The event will take place on Saturday, March 12, from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm at Bentley University in Waltham.
We are offering over 20 workshops on skills trainings, issues tracks, and expert advice. These include: Coal-Free 2020, Maintaining Your Team for the Long Haul, and Getting Organics out of the Waste Stream: How to Fight Global Warming, Reduce Trash and Make Landfills Safer.
We are very proud to announce that this year’s Keynote Speaker is Diane Wilson, a fourth-generation shrimp boat captain and environmental activist. Wilson has taken on Dow Chemical, oil refineries, and most recently BP after the Gulf disaster.
