Environmental Justice and Community-Engaged Research in Communities of Color
October 12, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
In this presentation on Monday, October 12 at 12 pm, the speaker will talk about how community-engaged research approaches including community-university partnerships, public science, citizen science, and community-owned and managed research (COMR) can be used to study and address these issues. Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities and low-wealth communities have been shown to host disproportionate numbers of environmental hazards and Locally Undesirable Land Uses (LULUs) including landfills, incinerators, petrochemical operations, refineries, industrial animal operations, among other uses. This disproportionate burden is known as environmental injustice which is caused by racism embedded in our social, economic, planning, and environmental policies. Register here.
