 A Forum on Environmental Justice 
 All Lungs are Created Equal:  Can Title VI Breathe Fairness  
 into Environmental  Decisionmaking? 

On Friday, April 9, from 2:00-4:15pm, the law school will host a forum on Environmental Justice.  Learn about Title VI of the Civil Rights Act and how it has become a major weapon of the environmental justice movement.  Title VI of the Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination by agencies receiving federal funds.  In the last few years, the environmental justice movement has increasingly relied on Title VI to challenge state decisions which result in disparate environmental  impacts to low-income and minority communities.   Recently, USEPA has been developing guidelines to help implement Title VI. 
Law students (JD only) enrolled at Chicago-Kent are welcome to attend any or all of the program sessions . However, pre-registration is required!  To register, please stop by the Office of Continuing Legal Education (Suite 530) to fill out a registration form.  Students must register no later than Wednesday, April 7, 1999.
