Week Three: Environmental Justice in a Moment of Danger by Julie Sze
Join us on June 24th as we discuss Julie Sze’s (UC Davis, Noxious New York) latest work, Environmental Justice in a Moment of Danger. An overview of environmental justice movements across the globe, including the protests at Standing Rock and activism in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria, the book offers both histories of past struggles and a roadmap for the future.
“Local, front-line struggles like the ones profiled here have long embodied—and continue to propel—our collective fight for a better society. If you want to understand how, let this book immerse you in the many worlds of environmental justice.”—Naomi Klein, author of On Fire and This Changes Everything
“Environmental Justice in a Moment of Danger is a rousing primer that illuminates the movement’s core principles. It demonstrates how interconnected disparate social movements are and shows that they can coalesce into more powerful networks.”—Foreword Reviews
