This is a virtual event.  Starting in January, on the first Wednesday of each month, Nina Beth Cardin will be discussing her favorite chapters from books about environmental health and the need for environmental rights. It’s an opportunity to gather with fellow advocates, get to know each other better, and broaden our learning and perspectives about environmental rights.  Email nina@mdehr.org.  Sax provides his perspective on why citizens can’t rely solely on the legislature (art of accommodation), solely on the regulators (close connections with industry), and therefore why citizens need a voice in the judiciary to balance these other forces.
