Jayn de @GullahGeechee fa Capitol Hill Ocean Week!

The CHOW 2021 conference will take place virtually from June 8th to 10th.  CHOW 2021 will examine how exclusionary practices and systemic racism impact conservation, science, and policy; and how strengthening diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice will improve the sustainability of our ocean, coasts, and Great Lakes. The CHOW 2021 program will explore the intersection of people and the environment and how we ensure that all communities have equal access to opportunities to maintain a healthy environment to live, learn, and work. The Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition is proud to be a sponsor/partner of CHOW 2021, and we’re excited to be part of this opportunity to build a more racially equitable and just movement for our ocean and Great Lakes.  www.CapitolHillOceanWeek.org
