Environmental Justice Toolkit

UNA-USA Youth Engagement intern Riya Vashi sits down with UNA-USA National Council representative Himaja Nagireddy to discuss the new Environmental Justice Toolkit that she created for UNA members. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, now is the perfect time to expand your knowledge on environmental justice in both a local and global context, and learn what actions you can take to make a difference. One easy way to advocate for our planet this Earth Day is by urging your members of Congress to support the UN’s work on bold climate action.

Explore the toolkit and follow along as you watch.
