Redistricting 101 & Environmental Community Mapmaking

March 18, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

It’s no secret that Ohio’s congressional and state legislative district maps are gerrymandered. Because of these maps, our legislators often fail to respond to Ohio voters on our most pressing issues, especially renewable energy and the fight against climate change. Fortunately, in 2015 and 2018, Ohioans overwhelmingly voted for new redistricting processes. What even is gerrymandering? How does redistricting affect you? How will it impact environmental issues? How will the new districts represent your community? Join the Ohio Environmental Council…

Exploring Access to Environmental Justice in Appalachia (Continuing Legal Education Course)

October 14, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

It’s no secret that Southeast Ohio and other Appalachian communities bordering the Ohio River experience environmental injustices at significantly higher rates than the rest of Ohio. And that the region, bordered by bounty, has played host to a number of extraction-based economics for decades, creating a place where farmlands abound, but fresh food is hard to find within the counties. From the past and present impacts of coal mining to the rapidly expanded oil and gas industry and more, the…
