ECS College & Career Initiative presents:
ECHS Career Day 2018 – Be Bold Advocates for Change
Friday, November 2, 2018
8:30AM – 12:30PM
Networking + Refreshments to follow
Join us for our 11th Annual Career Day at Environmental Charter High School
At ECHS, Career Day is a platform for inspiration, the exchange of ideas and sharing experiences. Community leaders and business professionals serve as presenters and workshop leaders as they share stories about the power of staying connected with our students. You are also invited to join us for a networking time where you can meet and exchange ideas with our students and network with other sustainably-minded professionals.
Be Bold Advocates for Change
Our mission is to reimagine public education in low income communities of color to prepare conscious, critical thinkers who are equipped to graduate from college and create a more equitable and sustainable world. Whether it’s organizing a hike to local parks for other students in their community or sharing about social justice issues with elected officials, ECS students are advocates and change makers. Great things are accomplished when we are compelled to organize our words and thoughts around a definitive action. At ECS, our students boldly innovate, lead and are a positive force in their communities.
Thank you for your interest! Our Speaker Sign-Ups are now closed. If you would like to attend Career Day as a guest, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keynote Speaker: Britney Craig
Britney Craig is a student, activist, mother, and community organizer. She is currently studying for her Bachelor of Arts in Sociology at California State University Dominguez Hills. She became involved in social justice and political activism during the summer of 2016 after the consecutive murders of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile by police and the senseless shooting at Pulse Night Club, and LGBT club in Florida.
These events precipitated Britney’s entry into activism, first as a member of Black Lives Matter Los Angeles and eventually evolving into a multi-faceted independent organizer. Today, Britney Craig still organizes with BLM and also serves as Treasurer to a South Los Angeles Neighborhood Council, coordinates a food distribution and community gardening program in the Central Alameda neighborhood, co-directed a Freedom School for youth during summer 2018 and so much more. Britney allows historical, political, and social realities to inform her work in such a way that it is as ever changing and dynamic as the communities in which she is a part of and serves.
