In Whose Backyard: Organizing Against Environmental Racism in Nova Scotia Sure Thing

When: Tue., Oct. 7, 5:30-8:30 p.m. 2014
Price: free
The Environmental Noxiousness, Racial Inequities & Community Health Project (ENRICH) and the Nova Scotia Public Interest Group (NSPIRG) are bring together community leaders, community-based agencies, students, policymakers, academics and media to discuss and strategize against environmental racism in Nova Scotia. Environmental racism is the disproportionate location of toxic industries and other environmental hazards close to racially marginalized communities compared to other communities. This is a systemic form of oppression and discrimination happening in our own backyard.
