Know an under recognized women in the trenches of environmental activism in West Michigan? Nominate her for a Hidden Heroine Award at the 2019 Women, Community & the Environment Series! All nominations due by January 16, 2019.
Every year WMEAC seeks to highlight the work of female leaders in our West Michigan community who are working to improve our environment and keep our community safe. Through these woman-initiated environmental justice efforts, the social equity of West Michigan continues to improve, offering inclusive and accessible living conditions, including, but not limited to, healthy homes, clean air, and clean water.
The 8th annual Women, Community & the Environment Series will be held across the community from February 21st through February 23rd. The overall theme will focus on water, health and look at what is happening in Michigan. Events will focus on what it means to be an activist and how to do advocacy work. The series will engage participants in networking, panel discussions, and a workshop. The series will culminate with our keynote speaker – Senator Stephanie Chang – and Hidden Heroine awards reception on February 23rd.
