Join the Harvard Kennedy School's Environment and Natural Resources Program on Wednesday, November 18 for "Coalitions for Environmental Health and Justice: Lessons from the 2020 Roy Award." This panel-based event will celebrate Clean Water for Carolina Kids, the 2020 winner of the Roy Family Award for Environmental Partnership, and its mission to protect North Carolina's children from dangerous lead exposure.
We will begin with a brief award presentation, followed by a panel conversation with scientists, advocates, and public health professionals on how to reduce exposure to toxins in drinking water, and how to center science and justice in the work to protect children’s health.
