The Western New York Environmental Alliance is meeting this Saturday, November 10th for their annual Congress. The meeting will take place at 10 am at the University at Buffalo Clinical Translation Research Center, 875 Ellicott Street on the fifth floor atrium level.
The Alliance is a group composed of over eighty member organizations and affiliates with three primary goals; Preserve and restore our regional environment through collaborative projects: Mobilize people and policymakers to improve the environment; and strengthen WNY Environmental organizations. The event will be followed with a lunch and lecture by Naomi Davis.
Davis is active in many communities to help stakeholders in the design and development of green, self-sustaining, mixed-income, walkable-villages within black neighborhoods. In addition to her advocacy work, Davis has authored a "whole-system" solution for the problems that are common to black communities entitled, "The 8 Principles of Green-Village-Building." She is currently a teacher at the University of Chicago Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture.
