On May 12, Portland State hosted a symposium on climate justice that brought together staff members from community organizations, regional and local climate policy leaders, and student activists from PSU and PCC to discuss their priorities and explore how PSU can aid and elevate the efforts of those working directly on this important issue.

The event, “Creating a Just Climate Future: A Community Dialogue," paired with PSU’s 15th Annual Sustainability Celebration, was seeded by PSU President Stephen Percy’s climate initiative announcement.
