WE ACT at CCNY: New Environmental Justice "E-J" Club

Sept. 11 – 12:30 -1:30 PM
Media & Communication Arts
Shepard Hall, Room #492

To Students in All Majors:

There is a new club beginning on campus, WE ACT at CCNY, associated with WE ACT for Environmental Justice, a West Harlem community based advocacy organization (http://www.weact.org).

To learn more, join us Thursday, Sept. 11, 12:30 - 1:30 PM, Room #492 – Shepard Hall, Media & Communication Arts Dept.

The club will work to inform, educate, train and mobilize CCNY students and Northern Manhattan residents on issues that impact their quality of life, from pollution to citizen participation in public policy.

WE ACT at CCNY will allow students to build leadership, communication, and advocacy skills. These skills will be learned and taught in an informal setting where students will have the opportunity to take part in social, fundraising, and community based campaigns and events. As global markets focus attention on the environment, sustainability, and community service, WE ACT will allow students to gain valuable work experience in a sector of the “Green” movement.

Currently we are looking for officers as well as members. Executive positions are as follows: President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary. This is an opportunity to begin building a resume for future employment as organizations look for people who are pro active in their communities and field of work. It also shows your ability to work in a professional environment.

We hope to see you Sept. 11!

Editorial Note: WE ACT for Environmental Justice was the Spring 2008 "Client" for the Advertising/Public Relations Workshop. Seniors created educational awareness campaigns to shine a bright light on Northern Manhattan environmental justice concerns.
