Thanks for a great talk. Is there additional specialty coursework that social workers in ecological justice work should get--in a SSW or outside? For example is public health doing anything more than we are to prepare students to work in this field?
Jodi Frey
01:21:23
Great presentation - so much to think about and action that we can all take.
John Machale
01:24:47
Do any large environmental organizations like the Sierra Club employ social workers?
Leanna Powell (she/her), Blue Water Baltimore
01:25:35
I don't know about large organizations, but smaller ones sure do! We hire policy organizers, community organizers, outreach specialists, etc.
Michelle Young
01:26:38
Do you have any ideas how we could infuse some of these ideas into a BSW/generalist level practice classes? You mentioned a bit about open resource ideas but I missed where that was housed. Thanks!
Corey Shdaimah (she/her)
01:27:25

@Michelle, yes — here’s CSWE’s Curricular Guide for Environmental Justice (looks like it may be $15): https://www.cswe.org/Bookstore/Books/Curricular-Guide-for-Environmental-Justice — also, check out the open access IFSW sustainability workbooks which are open access, I believe, e.g., https://www.ifsw.org/product/books/social-work-promoting-community-and-environmental-sustainability/

fyi, GO MS Campbell! I serve on the Baltimore CCHD --The Catholic Campaign for Human Development CCHD is a National Foundation that has been funding environmental justice community efforts of low income groups for over 50 years --in fact we are currently funding the South Baltimore Community Land Trust AND the East Baltimore Community Land Trust !! We are in our funding cycle now but other community groups could apply NEXT fall.

Map the problems to find the solutions for system change.
Michelle Young
01:57:27
I am curious if any of your agencies host students for internships or field placements. They sound like fantastic places for students to learn from an experiential lens and to be able to add to the efforts.
Leanna Powell (she/her), Blue Water Baltimore
01:57:49
Give that $$ directly to folks working in their own communities, especially Black & Brown folks. Skip the Sierra Club
Ruth Ann Norton
01:58:45
We definitely host and pay for internships, fellowships etc. ranorton@ghhi.org
Leanna Powell (she/her), Blue Water Baltimore
02:01:24
Beware of "Zero Waste" policy when it includes offsets like tree plantings in wealthy zip codes to make up for pollution that end up in marginalized communities
Leanna Powell (she/her), Blue Water Baltimore
02:02:16
We host paid internships as well
Michelle Young
02:06:15
Thanks everyone---

I am a field social worker and visit clients in their homes. I would love to learn more about case management in environmental justice programs.
Leanna Powell (she/her), Blue Water Baltimore
02:08:26
I encourage anyone who visits clients at home to keep an ear out for residential sewage backups and encourage people to report them to us and to the City. They recently expanded clean-up programs and we're trying to improve them still.
John Machale
02:17:03
How much focus at any of your agencies is given to shaming polluters and indifferent policy makers? Can shaming be an effective part of accomplishing your agency mission?
Leanna Powell (she/her), Blue Water Baltimore
02:18:02
We use shame VERY strategically, John! Our press releases about legal action against polluters and regulators (usually a city or state agency either way) are generally intended mostly to put the public spotlight on them
John Machale
02:18:57
Thanks Leanna.
Nicole Mattocks
02:23:41
As was mentioned, UMB is a large institution here in the community. What changes do you want to see from our institution?
Audene Watson
02:24:19
Thank you all for the presentation
Leanna Powell (she/her), Blue Water Baltimore
02:24:44
YES Dante! I'd love to see institutions like UMB getting behind City policy like the Resilience Authority and then use it as part of their investment strategy
Leanna Powell (she/her), Blue Water Baltimore
02:25:28
Universities also have massive investment portfolios that are not yet divested from the oil & gas industries
Dante Swinton
02:26:27
Indeed! Divesting is critical.
Dante Swinton
02:26:35
Yessss, Shashawnda. :-D
Leanna Powell (she/her), Blue Water Baltimore
02:27:30
It's also important to note that universities as nonprofits do not pay property tax; the funds from our tax base are used to invest in City services like composting and low-emission public transit. There is a lot of money staying within the university system and out of the City's coffers.
Nicole Mattocks
02:28:26
Thanks, everyone! This information is so important. I’ll be reaching out to some of you after this to discuss more how UMB can contribute to to the solution 🙂
Ruth Ann Norton
02:31:02
Agree on research comment - that is why it has to be community driven and led -
Corey Shdaimah (she/her)
02:31:52
