Everyone deserves to live in a healthy and safe environment. That environment includes where you live, work, play, and pray. We reject and actively push back against racist rhetoric, actions, policies and institutional oppression that leads to state-sanctioned brutality, gun violence, and harm that again and again assaults communities, particularly communities of color. We are committed to working for justice and equity, and are in solidarity with social, racial, and environmental justice organizations to build community, understanding and honest dialogue to address the root causes of violence, harm and hate.

Laura Bricklin
After moving to Missoula to attend college, I found myself looking for a way to become involved with the environmental community. I discovered Women’s Voices for the Earth and it seemed to be a perfect fit, combining two of my passions: healthcare and the environment. I began volunteering as a freshman and have been involved ever since.

The health of an individual, and of society, is heavily influenced by the environment in which they live. As a physician, I hope to be able to address the most basic issues affecting the health of our society; primarily, the environment in which we live and the products that we interact with daily. I believe that the way to a healthier society is by educating people about how to keep themselves and the environment in which we live healthy.

I love working with WVE because everyone is so passionate about what they’re doing and they bring that energy with them everyday to work.

Laura is such a valuable asset to WVE as an intern, and we know she’s going to take medical school by storm!
