Join Bridge Lunch Break chat on climate change impacts in Michigan
Bridge Michigan invites readers to join us Thursday, July 29 for the latest in our monthly Bridge Lunch Break series. This time around, we’ll be discussing the impact of climate change on Michigan communities as well as the ways in which environmental justice groups and policies are being employed to aid communities impacted by emergency weather events.
We’ll be joined by Michelle Martinez, acting executive director of the Michigan Environmental Justice Coalition and William Shuster, chair and professor of the Wayne State University Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. This hour-long discussion will be moderated by Bridge environmental reporter Kelly House from 12 to 1 p.m.
