The Impacts of Environmental Injustices on Health & Society

Part Three of Intersections of Environment and Justice: From Our Bodies to the Earth

Injustices across race, gender, class, and immigration status - such as differential chemical exposures and colonial land use practices - destabilize the lives and health of historically marginalized communities, impacting people on both the local and global level. In this webinar, Carson Scholars in Public Health, Medical Anthropology, and English discuss how our social systems impact agricultural, urban small business, and mining communities in ways that contribute to ongoing environmental and social inequity.
