Description

On this week’s edition of Sustainability Now!, your host, Justin Mog, brings you highlights from the 4th annual Environmental Justice Conference: Climate Change - Environmental Justice - Investing in Our Future. The conference was hosted on December 3rd by the West Jefferson County Community Task Force and the NAACP at Simmons College. Today we’ll hear about Health Equity in Louisville with Aja Barber, Community Health Administrator & Nick Hart, Environmental Health Manager, at the Louisville Metro Center for Health Equity, in the Dept. of Public Health & Wellness.

Aja Barber is originally from Texas but moved to Louisville in 2016. She received her B.A. in Political Science and M.S. in Youth Development from Texas A&M University. While in graduate school, she studied the relationship between institutional racism and trauma, the structural impact of racism on psychological curriculum, and the ways activism addresses community healing. Aja has a specialized passion for facilitating the understanding that the conditions we live in are created and we can build something different by transforming our structures and institutions in ways that work for all of us. Aja finds balance through yoga, hiking, traveling, and her community.
