Event Information

Description

Join us for a special evening with Adriano Martinez, a Los Angeles-based Earthjustice attorney

What's next for Oregon after the state legislature passed HB2007, which regulates diesel trucks in the Portland Metro region, to continue to address the most dangerous air pollution in our state? Can we tackle our biggest environmental challenges head on, and address the intersections of Environmental Justice, Air Quality and Climate?

We invite you for a very special evening with Adriano Martinez, an attorney from the Los Angeles office of Earthjustice, and presentations on the most recent Portland Metro region air quality research from Amelia Schlusser, attorney at the Green Energy Institute and Dr. Linda George, leading air quality environmental research specialist, Portland State University.

His extensive litigation experience includes environmental claims in state and federal court. Since 2013, he has been an adjunct lecturer in law at UCLA School of Law, where he has co-taught a course on environmental justice. Adriano has presented on transportation electrification and other topics in environmental law at several conferences, including the Los Angeles Regional Collaborative for Climate Action and Sustainability’s Forum on Electrifying Transportation in California.
