Environmental justice aims to ensure that everyone enjoys equal protection from environmental hazards, can access and influence environmental decision-making, and benefits from a healthy environment in which to live, learn, work, and play.

A.5. On Wednesday, April 4th, 3-5pm, The Share the DREAM Undocumented Student Ally Trainings will be held at Lakeshore Campus for graduate students. The Share the DREAM Undocumented Student Ally Trainings provide the Loyola community with skills to understand the value and importance of exploring the experiences and perspectives of undocumented students; they aim to generate knowledge for self-learning; and they increase on-campus support for and the inclusion of undocumented students. Upon completing the training, trainees receive a placard that recognizes them as allies and as points of support for undocumented students on campus. The goal is that participants display these placards in their work area to invite questions and/or dialogue about the issues that impact this community. Trainings are held several times a year and are open to faculty, staff, and students. It is important that trainees commit to the entire two hours in order to receive all of the information they need in order to support this community. If you would like more information on our trainings or are interested in attending, please contact us at diversity@luc.edu.
