Description:
Robert Bullard discusses environmental justice movement
Dr. Robert Bullard, known as "the father of environmental justice," presents an insightful account of events, individuals and organizations that have shaped the environmental justice movement over the past two decades, and describes a framework for how advances in environmental justice can and should be achieved. Pre-lecture fair starts at 5:45 p.m. Lecture starts at 7:p.m., with Q&A at 8:15 p.m.

Hurricane Katrina provided a startling reminder that environmental health threats such as pollution and climate change disproportionately affect historically disadvantaged communities in our society. Some progress has been made in environmental law and governance, policy and planning in the United States, yet major work lies ahead in order to eliminate disparities and achieve the goal of global health and sustainability.
