NC EJ Summit 2017: Building People’s Power Against State Violence Through the Lens of Environmental Justice

Location: The Franklinton Center at Bricks (Whitakers, NC)

Date: October 20-21, 2017


Dear NC EJ Network Family,

Happy Summer! We hope this message finds you well, and keeping cool. We’re so excited to announce that registration is now open for our 19th Annual NC Environmental Justice Summit! As you know, our theme this year is Building People’s Power Against State Violence. This means we’ll be connecting some other social justice challenges, such as the school to prison pipeline to the new and ongoing environmental justice issues impacting our communities in North Carolina and our broader region.

If you are interested in proposing a session for the EJ Summit, please contact our Summit coordinators at by July 10th!

To register for the Summit, please visit our EJ Summit registration page (found under the menu tab marked for the EJ Summit). In the past few years, our Summit has been at capacity, so please register soon and arrange your lodging! Housing at the conference site Franklinton Center at Bricks is reserved first for our scholarship participants, but if you would like to stay there, please be sure to put yourself on the waiting list when you register. Otherwise, we have reserved limited rooms under NCEJN at the Country Inn & Suites in Rocky Mount:
Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Rocky Mount, NC
672 English Road, Rocky Mount, North Carolina, 27804, US
p: +1 (252) 442-0500  f: +1 (252) 442-0964

Finally, to ensure that as many members from our impacted communities can attend as possible, we ask that if you are able, to please make a donation to our scholarship fund! We exceeded our goal last year, and we’d like to bring even more impacted community members to join than last year. Can you help us reach our goal of $5000 by September 30th?
