What is at Stake for Environmental Justice in 2016? The Elusive Role of Race and Equity in Environmental Regulation
October 11, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm
Almost 35 years have passed since protests in Warren County, NC against the siting of a toxic waste disposal facility in a predominantly African-American community trained nationwide attention on the emerging environmental justice movement.
Even as the term of the country’s first African-American President comes to an end, however, the goal of environmental justice remains unfulfilled. The talk will review the history of the movement, how it has changed perspectives on the role of race and equity in environmentalism and regulatory policy, and some of the remaining key challenges that face the next Administration.
