The Quest for Environmental and Racial Justice – A Talk by Dr. Robert Bullard, The Father of Environmental Justice
April 21 @ 5:00 pm
In 2019, Dr. Robert Bullard was named one of the world’s 100 Most Influential People in Climate Policy by Apolitical. In 2020, the United Nations Environment Program honored him with its Champions of the Earth Lifetime Achievement Award. A Distinguished Professor of Urban Planning and Environmental Policy at Texas Southern University, he is the award-winning author of 18 books that address sustainable development, environmental racism, climate justice, community resilience, regional equity, and more.
“Whether by conscious design or institutional neglect, communities of color in urban ghettos, in rural ‘poverty pockets’, or on economically impoverished Native-American reservations face some of the worst environmental devastation in the nation.”
~ Dr. Robert Bullard
A Q&A will immediately follow his talk, moderated by Community Environmental Council Board Secretary Dr. David N. Pellow, who is the UC Santa Barbara Dehlsen Chair of Environmental Studies and Director of the Global Environmental Justice Project.
