The 2014 Solutions Conference presents "Eco-Equity: The Crossroads Between Cultural Diversity and Environmental Health." Environmental justice promotes a fair distribution of environmental benefits and burdens. Eco-Equity will revolve around the ability of all communities to protect their health, safety, and economic interests from unjust environmental degradation. Historically underprivileged populations and minorities are survivors of cultural genocide. The loss of these communities impacts all of humanity.
Through five panels, experts and practitioners from all over the country will explore the many current legal issues sparked by Environmental Justice.
This conference is sponsored by the Student Bar Association, Office of Student Affairs and Diversity, Black Law Student Association, Environmental Law Society, Latin American Law Students Association, and Native American Law Students Association.
