dc.description.abstract The fight for environmental justice and racial justice are inextricably linked. The proposed presentation will explore those linkages. The goal of environmental justice is to ensure that all people are fairly and equally affected by environmental policies and are not disproportionately impacted from environmental hazards. Unfortunately, in the U.S., low-income and minority communities are disproportionately affected by environmental issues. Learning about environmental justice is important because to become an informed citizen who takes actions against inequalities in our society, citizens need to learn about how environmental issues negatively impact certain communities. en_US
