Environmental justice addresses issues of: (1) unequal distribution of resources such as clean air and water, healthy food, homes, parks, places to walk and sit in public, etc.; (2) inaccessibility of public goods and resources because of transportation, cost or discrimination; and (3) exclusion from facilities and full participation in decisions about one’s community largely because of poverty, prejudice, race, income, recent immigration, or other marginal status.
This event will feature case studies addressing a myriad of environmental justice issues, presented by a panel representing the fields of landscape architecture, planning, and community advocacy.
