Name of the student educators program (2nd program):
Ecosocial Justice Day

A brief description of the student educators program (2nd program):

Since 2016, PCC has proudly held an annual event focusing on the intersections between social justice and sustainability. The programming of these events have largely been supported by the student funded Eco Social Justice Grant (ESJG). These annual events, and the ESJG are efforts that have been made to broaden the scope of efforts to help create a more socially just and environmentally sustainable school and reality. This year in fact, the PCC District Student Council decided to include an Eco Social Justice Coalition. This means one leader from each campus will now be a part of the collective decision making process in student government. They will also be a part of and have a voice at the table in the Sustainability Leadership Council (SLC).


A brief description of the student educators program’s target audience (2nd program):

Ecosocial Justice Day is open to all student leaders and provides training to all student leaders - this includes students in the Associated Students of Portland Community College and students that work in a variety of identity based equity centers (Veterans Center, Dreamers center, Multicultural resource center) and the Career Center.

Ecosocial Justice Training

A brief description of the student educators program (3rd program):

The sustainability office offers annual ecosocial justice training for students. All of our staff attend these trainings on a regular basis.


A brief description of the student educators program’s target audience (3rd program):

Student leaders complete anti-racist training annually as part of their work for PCC. Starting in 2020, the sustainability office participates by supplementing this training with a workshop that focuses on making connections between environmental and social impacts. Students are assigned reading to do before the workshop. The three-hour workshop is divided into activity sections in which students watch videos and then have discussions around the topic areas. These areas are: the relationship between environmental justice and disposability, connections between racism and the climate crisis, and systemic racism, local impacts and solutions. We finish with a training how we apply PCC’s Equity Tools in Sustainability (Fist to Five, identity cards, critical race theory, equity lens).
