‘Shades of Green’ Luncheon Reflects on Diversity

After weeks of collaboration and planning with environmental experts in Austin, HCC is excited to announce our Fall Lunch and Learn, “Shades of Green: Connecting with Austin’s Racially Diverse Environmental Community,” which will take place on Monday, August 10th at Green Pastures.

David Buggs, Director of Diversity and Inclusion, Texas Parks & Wildlife Department, will moderate a panel including Dominique Bowman (Huston-Tillotson University), Dave Cortez (Sierra Club), and Marisa Perales (environmental attorney), as they discuss their experience as people of color practicing environmentalism and conservation in and outside of Austin. The panelists will also offer insight into how Austin’s predominantly white environmental movement can become more collaborative across race.
