“Race, Place, and Health: The State of Environmental Justice in America”

Environmental degradation has not fallen equally upon us all. The poor and communities of color are consistently disproportionately burdened with the consequences of polluting industries and toxic waste. Dr. Sacoby Wilson, Professor of Applied Environmental Health at the University of Maryland’s school of Public Health and an activist for social change, will explain the extent of the problem and point us on a path toward restoring our environment while assuring justice. This lecture is co-sponsored by the Rockhurst Anti-Racism Employee Resource Group. You must register in advance here to participate in this FREE live Zoom event.
