Staci Rubin, Vice President, Environmental Justice at Conservation Law Foundation (CLF). Rubin partners with residents of historically marginalized communities to solve some of our biggest environmental challenges and works with staff across the organization to embed environmental justice throughout CLF’s culture.
Communities of color and low-income neighborhoods are typically hit first and worst by the climate crisis change, pollution, and other environmental harms, a pattern attributable to centuries of oppression often reinforced by the terms and structure of current environmental laws and policies. This event explored environmental justice challenges and strategies and opportunities to address them in Massachusetts.
