Listen to GreenState Podcast from Oregon DEQ

Listen to GreenState the 04/22/2022 podcast: Environmental Justice in the environmental and conservation movements and at DEQ. Check out the podcast and show notes here.

"To celebrate Earth Day/Week/Month, Lauren and Dylan are talking about environmental justice and diversity, equity and inclusion - not just in general, but how this conversation is evolving at DEQ specifically. They are joined by three DEQ staff integral to this work:

  • Natalie Nava, DEQ Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Coordinator

  • Chamille Hartman, Northwest Region Water Quality, also involved in the environmental justice work group

  • Ximena Cruzcueves, Cleanup Program Coordinator, also involved in the BIPOC affinity group, on the DEI Council, and leading the environmental justice work group

"This conversation touches on the history of racism in the United State and Oregon have created structures that impact even efforts seen as progressive, like the environmental and conservation movements. Institutions have been undoubtedly influenced by this history, and DEQ has begun work to re-imagine how the agency can protect the environment in a way that represents the experiences and responds to the needs of everyone who lives in Oregon."
