Michigan Environmental Justice Conferences

The Office of the Environmental Justice Public Advocate brings together individuals and groups from across Michigan and beyond to work toward advancing environmental justice in Michigan.

The Michigan Environmental Justice Conference serves as a platform to engage in dialogue around environmental justice issues across a wide range of perspectives. These events seek to elevate the voices of those with lived experience in environmental justice communities.
