The class includes examination of the evolution of the Environmental Justice Movement, the political economy of environmental inequalities, environmental history and practices, institutionalized racism and urban development patterns that contribute to the manifestation of unjust environmental conditions in low income and communities of color in the United States. The course also considers the critical question: What can be done to correct these inequalities? Emphasis will be placed on the public policy, urban planning and community based solutions in practice in Environmental Justice Communities. We will use local case studies, toxic tours and guest lectures to enrich class readings and discussions.
