From Around The O:
Jill Stein, a physician and 2012 presidential candidate for the Green Party, will serve as one of the keynote speakers for the 2014 Public Interest Environmental Law Conference at the University of Oregon.
This year’s conference, “Running Into Running Out,” will run from Feb. 27 to March 2. Stein will speak on Sunday, March 2.
Stein, a pioneering environmental health advocate, has been on the front lines of battles for social, economic and environmental justice. She has fought to end foreclosures and student debt, and for health care and education as human rights. She has proposed an end to dangerous fossil fuel and nuclear power, and creating 25 million healthy, community-based green jobs instead.
