Barry University School of Law hosts 3rd Annual
Environmental Justice Summit
Memorial Quilts Featured
On Friday, October 21, 2011, the Center for Earth Jurisprudence at Barry University School of Law held their 3rd Annual Environmental Justice Summit entitled “Serving People and the Planet.” Making an appearance at this year’s summit were the Lake Apopka Farmworker Memorial Quilts.
Along with the quilts, former Lake Apopka farmworkers provided members of the panel discussions and the audience with first-hand accounts of what it means to be a farmworker and what the health consequences of environmental injustices are. Keynote speaker, Majora Carter, inspired the group with her presentation on the great strides she has made in her community in New York, turning environmental injustice into community successes. Thank you so much Barry University School of Law for hosting the Lake Apopka Farmworker Memorial Quilts and supporting farmworkers!
