Beyond Toxics, as part of the Oregon Just Transition Alliance, is recruiting folks in the Eugene/Springfield area to apply for the Energy Justice Leadership Institute, to build leadership in communities that are impacted most by our energy system and influence our policies. This training will run December 2020 through the end of June. This is a stipend opportunity for our communities to meaningfully engage in our energy system and to help move policy forward.

The Energy Justice Leadership Institute will create space for participants to learn together, share experiences, and shape our energy policy to ensure that it truly serves communities that are most impacted by our energy system.

2021 online training…

We are excited to announce our new movement-building training in Environmental and Climate Justice Leadership for Oregon. This training is called Rise as leaders: BIPOC Environmental Leadership Cohort Training, being provided by the collaborative project of LOCAL under Beyond Toxics, NAACP, and Unete. We are inviting BIPOC communities in both the Rogue and Willamette Valleys who are called to be transformative leaders for positive social change in Racial and Environmental Justice.

The program will consist of 8 online training modules with offline assignments centered around climate justice and organizing. There may be a potential in-person gathering in the late Winter/early Spring 2021 for select members.

The cost of the training is free to participants. A stipend is available for those who complete the training.
