The League and others are partnering with the Women's City Club to sponsor a panel of speakers on the Intersection of Poverty and the Environment.

The lower a family's income, the more likely the family's health, safety and livelihood are to suffer from the ill effects of environmental degradation, climate change, and natural disasters. This is an economic justice issue.

The panel consists of Heather Taylor-Meisle, Director of the Ohio Environmental Council; Cathy Bailey, Director of the Greater Cincinnati Water Works; Laura Brunner, Director of the Port Authority; and Nancy Laird and Donna Jones of Price Hill.
