Race and Equity Reading Group: Environmental Justice in Mexico and the U.S.-Mexico border region

Thursday, August 2, 2018 - 12:30pm




WebEx Meeting Center


For the next call in our series on Race and Equity in Environmental Leadership, we will hear from 2016 Fellow Carolina Prado, Senior Research Scientist at the Environmental Health Coalition in National City, California.  Carolina will use her work on community mapping of environmental health indicators in Tijuana, Baja California, to open a discussion on what environmental justice looks like in Mexico and the U.S.-Mexico border region.  (Carolina's work has been partially funded by a Switzer Leadership Grant.)
This is one of a series of calls on race and equity in environmental work, to help Fellows learn about research, tools and case studies of the intersections between race, diversity, equity and environmental outcomes.  These calls are open to all Fellows.  Reading and discussion are part of each call.  Future topics will include new perspectives on the history of the environmental movement, shifts in higher education opportunities, and a fall presentation with Lissa on the Switzer Foundation's equity and inclusion efforts.  Stay tuned for details on upcoming calls, and feel free to suggest speakers or topics for these and other networking calls!
Fellows who would like to join the Race and Equity reading group, which convenes periodically, please contact Lissa.
