Distinguished Lecture Series with Robert Bullard, in partnership with UT Africana Studies and Black in Appalachia
“The Quest for Environmental and Climate Justice”

Climate change is the defining global environmental justice, human rights, and public health issue of the 21st century. The most vulnerable populations will suffer the earliest and most damaging setbacks because of where they live, their limited income and economic means, and their lack of access to health care. Professor Bullard’s presentation will focus primarily on the U.S. and the need for empowering vulnerable populations, identifying environmental justice and climate change “hot-spot” zones, and designing fair, just and effective strategies for adaptation, mitigation, emergency management and community resilience and disaster recovery. He will offer a framework for dismantling systemic racism and policies and practices that create, exacerbate and perpetuate inequality and vulnerability.
