epa community involvement training

On July 19th, Maria Bergh represented JustDesign, the social justice design cooperative, at the EPA’s Community Involvement Training. Alongside Frank Bergh, her brother and co-founder of JustDesign Cooperative, Maria shared the benefits of operating according to cooperative principles and led the participants in a series of community organizing and participatory design exercises that built community and awareness of the potential that community involvement has beyond fulfilling legal requirements, as Sherry Arnstein advocates in her ladder of citizen participation.
