VIMS After Hours: Elizabeth River Environmental Justice Tool
September 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join Dr. Molly Mitchell, Research Assistant Professor at VIMS, and Joe Rieger, Deputy Director of Restoration at Elizabeth River Project, as they discuss the Elizabeth River Environmental Justice Tool. This tool, developed through collaboration between ERP and VIMS, allows planners to deliberately focus on equity for historically marginalized communities within the Elizabeth River watershed. Combining social and environmental data sets, the EREJT is an environmental justice resource that can be used across disciplines to address racial disparities while addressing critical environmental issues impacting the communities.
Registration is required on website.
After Hours lectures are designed for an adult audience.
We are excited to offer this lecture in-person in McHugh Auditorium on VIMS’ Gloucester Point Campus! Face masks are currently optional for all individuals in indoor spaces on the VIMS campus. This lecture will also be available as a live-streamed webinar. Registration is required for both in-person and webinar attendees. Webinar links will be sent in all registration confirmation emails. At this time, we are expecting a hybrid event, but registrants will be notified in advance if the event moves to a virtual only format.
