ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE DISCUSSION SERIES PRESENTS: POLLUTION INJUSTICE,
THURSDAY, NOV. 17, 12-1 P.M., UMC 245
No community should suffer more environmental burdens and less
environmental benefits than any other. However, low-income and minority
communities frequently suffer the greatest negative impacts of polluting and
toxic industries, and are often systematically excluded from the resources
designed to enforce environmental safety standards. Join us for an informal
conversation on the unequal distribution and effects of pollution, and what is
being done to fight these issues.
Thursday, 12-1 p.m., Nov. 17, UMC 245
