‘Toward a Critical Environmental Justice: Exploring State Violence & the Settler Colonial Conflicts’
Tuesday, April 16, 2019 | 4-5 p.m.
Aline Skaggs Biology (ASB) 210
Many of us who care about climate change and environmental justice take action in our daily lives to do our part: we recycle, use sustainable products, use public transportation or eat locally grown food. Yet often environmental problems play out at a larger scale, and while our personal actions can help in small ways, it is important to understand the forces at work in creating environmental hazards and injustice from the start. If we know where injustice begins, we can begin to make a change for the better.
Pellow is exploring new directions in environmental justice in his research. On April 16 from 4-5 p.m. in ASB 210, join him for his lecture, “Toward a Critical Environmental Justice: Exploring State Violence & the Settler Colonial Conflicts.”
