Disposable Communities? Demanding Environmental Justice- Building Bridges Conference Christ Chapel

This student-led diversity conference will discuss the intersections of race, class, identity, and the environment. For this reason, we have invited Van Jones, political activist, environmental justice advocate, and author of The Green Collar Economy, to be this year's first keynote speaker. He will examine the social issues associated with environmental degradation and the disproportionate impact they have on vulnerable communities. Delivering the second keynote address will be grassroots environmental justice activist and organizer from the Bronx Alexie Torres-Fleming, who will speak on community empowerment in response to environmental burdens.
