Environmental Racism

Thursday, January 22
7:00 p.m.
Room 1142, Lawson Computer Science Building

Third World Newsreel has combined footage from over 20 sources that focuses on educating and organizing disadvantaged communities to act on environmental issues and conditions affecting them.

View two films: one shows how techniques used during the Civil Rights movement can be applied to deal with issues such as urban waste dumping near poor communities, fighting for clean water and air, and toxic dumping in Africa by U.S. chemical companies; the other targets issues among Native American and Mexican communities in the Southwest, Latinos facing homelessness in urban areas, and indigenous Amazonians fighting against the destruction of their environment by cattle ranchers.

This event is free and open to the public.
