UEE Alums Speak Their Truth at Story Collider Event

On an evening in late June, James King, Stephanie Ung, and Rasheena Fountain, three alumni of AUS’s Urban Environmental Education (UEE) program, told moving and personal stories of family, race, and environmental justice at a sold out event hosted by the Story Collider. The Story Collider is a storytelling event and podcast that invites participants to tell “true, personal stories about science.” The theme of the evening was “Deeply Rooted,” and the storytellers all spoke of their own families and the deep, complex legacies of environmental justice and stewardship that those families cultivated. The three UEE alums told incredibly impactful stories that demonstrated their long-standing commitments to environmental justice and the ways that they are each disrupting society’s preconceived notions of who belongs in the environmental community.

AUS and the UEE Program are so proud of these students and the amazing and powerful work they are doing to advance equity and environmental justice.
