The Environmental Justice Working Group (EJWG) at Stanford is an intergenerational collective working to embed environmental justice into our research, teaching, and community-engagement at Stanford. Our EJWG Coordinating Council meets every two weeks. We comprise a dedicated leadership team with faculty, staff, and student co-leads and representatives from 20 different organizational affiliations on campus. We serve a broader community of 600+ members and connect broadly with Bay Area EJ leaders supporting academic-community partnerships.
