Join the Little Village Environmental Justic Organization (LVEJO) and come together around issues of Community Roots, Youth Justice and Environmental Racism. There will be multiple workshops and resources from various partners, organizations and institutions to raise awareness and expose Little Village youth to the rise of gentrification in their neighborhood, how criminalization of youth is an environmental injustice and what environmental racism is as a frontline community. EOC members will be there as well, engaging with youth at the summit to talk about their experiences as leaders in environmental sustainability.
The Youth Summit is taking place Saturday, April 30th. The event will take place at the Little Village Boys & Girls Club (2801 S. Ridgeway, Chicago, Il 60623). This event is focused around youth from Little Village to connect them with resources and information relevant to their experiences, the more interactive the better!
