Fellows in the News
During Candice Youngblood's final year at Berkeley Law, she pitched and organized a 200+ attendee environmental justice symposium to increase environmental justice scholarship and discourse within the environmental legal field. The symposium, called Ground-Truthing Injustice, was held on February 8, 2019. She organized the symposium as a leader for the student organization Students for Economic and Environmental Justice (SEEJ). The Thelton E. Henderson Center for Social Justice and the Center for Law, Energy & the Environment helped host the event.
 
As the lead organizer, she invited Switzer Fellows Irene Vasquez and Mike Wilson to speak at the symposium. In partnership, Ecology Law Quarterly published a special issue for the symposium, which was printed this year. The issue features Candice's introductory remarks here, Irene's remarks here, and Mike's remarks here. Additionally, Irene published a separate piece for the issue, which can be found here.
