EA 086 PZ -Environmental Justice

Institution: Pitzer

Description: There is a small but growing movement in the United States which contends that environmental harm is distributed in a fundamentally racist manner. What does this mean and how do we adjudicate such claims?

This course will critically examine the Environmental Justice (EJ) movement in the United States: its history, central claims, frameworks and methods for analyzing race, class and the environment, EJ campaigns, and on-going strategies.

In this course, you will actively learn to analyze environmental issues using an environmental justice lens, evaluate the race and equity implications of environmental harms, and be inspired to do something about environmental injustice!

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
