Environmental Justice at Work: Engaging Communities and Hard-to-Reach Populations in the Green Energy and Utility Industries

Presentation below will provide an overview of environmental justice and grassroots empowerment and provide descriptions of several successful programs in Los Angeles that embody these principles by engaging and training hard-to reach populations for green careers. Among the examples highlighted are a community-based job training program that leads to employment in the City’s green building retrofit program, which was developed as a result of LA’s groundbreaking 2009 ordinance, Green Building Retrofit and Workforce Program, initiated by L.A. Apollo Alliance, and strategies employed by L.A. Trade-Technical College’s Female Lineworker Training and the Clean Diesel Program at Camp Gonzalez (a Juvenile Detention Center).
