Environmental Justice

The environment and global warming are often in the headlines, but let’s go deeper and discuss how various cultures interact with nature and their environment. A recent “1A” radio program interviewed 4 people on different aspects of environmental justice: an indigenous activist, a professor from Yale, a climate justice advocate, and a director at Sierra Club.

One fascinating part of the program (from 19:00-21:00) discussed how to sustainably grow, harvest, and deliver rice to a population. Other aspects of environmental justice are clean water, enforcing meaningful laws and regulations, and treating all people fairly via environmental laws.

Please join StoicDan this Sunday for “Environmental Justice”. We will review this topic in depth. We hope you’ll read the following material and bring a friend to the discussion. Hope to see you there!
