Speaker: Amara Ifeji, freshman, Northeastern University; Grassroots Development Coordinator, Maine Environmental Education Association

In this talk, Amara Ifeji will speak to her lived experiences as a BIPOC (black, Indigenous and people of color) individual, the marginalization she faced in fostering a connection to place with the environment, and how her self-sought passion for water justice led her to not only foster this connection herself, but to also serve as a conduit for other BIPOC and female-identifying students like herself.
