Cultural Competency Lecture - Environmental Justice – Global Movement, Local Actions
April 9, 2019 ● 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. ● WCC, Hurvis 225
Presenter: Jason Brozek
Topic: Environmental Justice and Its Intersections with Social Justice
The environmental justice movement, briefly, is built on the idea that negative environmental consequences are disproportionately felt by vulnerable, marginalized communities. To understand key environmental issues like climate change, deforestation and freshwater scarcity, therefore, we need to understand intersections with race, gender, and class. This discussion will explore the origins of the global environmental justice movement and connect it to local projects from students in the ENST 300 Environmental Justice symposium.
