An Evening for ACE: 20 Years of Environmental Justice

May 2, 2013

Penn Loh and Kalila Barnett will be speaking at the event.

This year ACE is celebrating our 20th anniversary. Founded in 1993, ACE has pioneered an organic and powerful bottom-up model for environmental organizing and advocacy. Our early work supported community leadership on environmental justice issues and provided legal resources for community partners. Now, 20 years later, ACE is a multi-generational, membership organization that helps lead the environmental justice movement in Massachusetts.

We invite you to a special reception and dialogue with ACE's founders, staff, early activists and supporters to reflect on 20 years of ACE and the environmental justice movement. Join us on May 15 at SEIU Local 615 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

The event will include a panel discussion that features our founding directors as well as current and former ACE staff and an alumnus from our youth program. We will be sharing stories from ACE’s beginning and considering the future of the environmental justice movement. Topics include the challenges and opportunities facing our movement and changes in the landscape of this field. See our event page for bios!

Our moderator is Julian Agyeman, ACE Member and Tufts Professor of Urban + Environmental Policy + Planning (UEP). Please also join us the next evening for Jammin’ for Justice, our annual celebration and fundraiser at Hibernian Hall in Roxbury.
