The Many Faces of Environmental (In)Justice: Scholarship Addressing Racism, Infrastructure and Climate Action
This event qualifies for 1.5 credit hours toward the annual Gillings School inclusive excellence training requirements for faculty and staff.
Environmental racism takes many forms, from higher rates of pollution and storm water issues in BIPOC communities to racist planning policies that lead to gentrification and displacement, and white supremacist investments in automotive-centric transportation systems. Our fourth R3 symposium, “The Many Faces of Environmental (In)Justice: Scholarship addressing Racism, Infrastructure and Climate Action,“ will highlight scholarship addressing environmental justice and climate action from UNC graduate students, research scientists and faculty from Epidemiology, Public Health, Social Work and Urban Planning.
