Hi Everyone!

Public Lab is hosting our monthly OpenHour today! Read on for the event details.

April 19: Law and Environmental Monitoring, 11am PT / 1pm CT / 2pm ET (find your timezone
This time last year we had our first OpenHour dialogue about law and environmental monitoring! Join us for our second panel discussion on this topic. During this event you will hear about national environmental law case studies, learn how to determine if legal advocacy is a route for your community to take regarding environmental justice concerns, and we will reserve time for you to bring any questions! If you are interested in environmental law as a professional career or area of study, we encourage you to tune in!  No pre-registration required, how to join here.

We will be joined by the following guest speakers:
