Healing, Health and Environmental Justice
Welcome to the Healing, Health and Environmental Justice page!
Healing, Health and Environmental Justice is one component of the US Social Forum which provides a space for social movements to gain momentum, confront political, economic, and social barriers, and bring about social change. The Forum provides a gathering space for individuals and organizations to share, collaborate, and build national relationships in pursuit of domestic and global peace and justice. To learn more about the US Social Forum in general, visit the main website at www.ussf2007.org.
