Day 1 Concurrent Session - Environmental Justice: Deadly Symptoms of Larger Problems

Environmental injustice is much more than a climate crisis, it is intertwined with many injustices and social inequities. From hazardous pollution to natural disasters, the negative impacts of environmental injustice affect people of color at much higher rates than other communities. A report published by Carlton Waterhouse in 2013, Environmental Justice: Deadly Symptoms of a Larger Problem (Journal of Healthcare, Science and the Humanities), confirmed what many environmental funders already know: pollution is just one way that we have continued to perpetuate racist practices in our communities. 

Join Carlton as he describes more about his research in the area of environmental justice and the work he and his colleagues are doing at the grassroots level to fight for environmental justice.
