SBU Receives 2014 Environmental Justice Award

 

Last Friday, March 14, 2014, South Bronx Unite and Bronx Council for Environmental Quality were presented with the 2014 Environmental Justice Award in recognition of the extensive work against the proposed relocation of FreshDirect, the creative visioning of an alternative open space plan (the Mott Haven-Port Morris Waterfront Plan) and the seamless interconnection to broader environmental quality initiatives across the borough. The award was given by the Professional Staff Congress, the union representing more than 25,000 faculty and staff at the City University of New York (CUNY) and the CUNY Research Foundation, following the Thirteenth Annual Nature, Ecology & Society Colloquium on “Our Environment in Transition” at which South Bronx Unite and Bronx Council for Environmental Quality presented on “An Expanding Circle of Green Justice: Public Participants Map Out a Sustainable and Resilient South Bronx Waterfront.”
