My name is Candice Youngblood, and I am a third-year student here at Berkeley Law. More
importantly, I am a member of Students for Economic and Environmental Justice, also known as SEEJ.
On behalf of SEEJ, it is my pleasure to welcome you all to our 2019 Symposium, “Ground-Truthing Injustice.” SEEJ was founded in 2009 to create a permanent home for environmental justice studies and advocacy at Berkeley Law. SEEJ is committed to advancing justice for low-income communities and communities of color. We accomplish this mission by engaging with a variety of local, national, and international environmental justice issues through an annual symposium, clinics, and workshops. SEEJ is also helping develop a broader environmental justice curriculum at the law school.
