As part of Climate Justice Week, the Student Environmental Resource Center at UC Berkeley (SERC) is sponsoring a panel on environmental racism featuring two very powerful warriors for environmental justice.
Join them for an evening of critical dialogue surrounding race and its intersection with social justice within the environmental movement. Both environmental degradation and benefits are distributed among racial and socioeconomic lines: toxic environmental racism works alongside the structural violence of poverty. Yet, these forms of violence receive little to no exposure or priority in the environmental movement, which only reinforces these same institutions.
