Young People Shaping Environmental Justice
by Julie Quiroz-Martinez, Diana Pei Wu, and Kristen Zimmerman, © 2005
This report examines the powerful visions and strategies of young people in the U.S. environmental justice movement. The Movement Strategy Center interviewed groups across the country, and found that youth organizers in the environmental justice movement are creating new ways to expand leadership, build intergenerational alliances, work sustainably and bridge issue areas and communities.
The groups profiled in this report offer models and strategies to reinvigorate every sector of the national progressive movement.
