Environmental Justice: Past, Present, & Future

This event brings together Social Justice and Civil Rights scholars and advocates to discuss the intersection of voting, civil disobedience, and environmental justice. As we come up on midterm elections in the U.S., this program highlights two things: the history and interconnectedness of voting rights and environmental justice in this country, and the ways in which movements have used other methods, such as protest, when the electoral processes have failed to promote equity and public wellbeing.
