Introduction to Environmental Justice

November 08, 2021 • 12:30 PM • Law School 3037

Environmental justice is defined as "the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income with respect to the development, implementation and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations and policies." But what does this mean in practice - how do we ensure that our environmental law and policy are equitable, effective, and inclusive? Join us to hear from an interdisciplinary panel of environmental justice professionals about the intersection of environmental law, policy, science, and community organizing, and how they are working to correct systemic environmental injustices. Lunch will be provided. Sponsored by the Environmental Law Society and DBA. Co-sponsored by BLSA, NC Club, SALSA, GPS, ACLU, NLG, NALSA, LALSA, FLS, and ACS.
