Truth and Growth is a UWSA Environmental Justice Movement, for students, by students.
Mission: To facilitate and empower Environmental Justice in our communities and beyond by exposing, learning and challenging the university’s position and of each other to the way we relate to our ecosystems.
Environmental injustices impact us in a holistic spectrum of realities and are interconnected to everything we do and touch as active participants of our environment. Environmental injustices build systemic barriers and destructive practices; the Truth and Growth Campaign nurtures a fluidity of stream that aims to assert our holistic relationship to the environment and develop new ways to move with and within it.
