Toxic: A Conversation on Environmental Racism

Wednesday, January 17, 2018, 12:15 - 1:15pm
College of Law - S. J. Quinney (LAW)

This year’s theme addresses the intentionality of environmental racism through systems and policies that disproportionately regulate zoning laws, chemical and toxic waste, and access to natural resources for communities of color as a way to further inequity of social, economic, and political power. These types of policies still exist today and have manifested through current issues like the Dakota access pipeline, Flint water crisis, and natural disaster relief. To give us a more in-depth look, we’ve invited experts from across the country to speak on a panel and share their research and perspectives regarding these particular topics. Moderator: Dr. Ivis Garcia-Zambrana, Assistant Professor of City and Metropolitan Planning Panelists: Dr. Robert Bullard, Distinguished Professor of Urban Planning and Environmental Policy at Texas Southern University Tara Houska, Tribal Rights Attorney & National Campaign Director for Honor the Earth Nayyirah Shariff, Community Political Organizer in Flint, MI, and Co-founder of the Flint Democracy Defense League The discussion will be followed by a Q&A session, where the audience will be able to submit questions to the panelists electronically. Parking will be available at the Stadium Parking Lot, across the street from the Law Building. --- At the University of Utah, we celebrate the educational access and opportunities that Dr. King's legacy has provided in the United States. MLK week has become a platform to engage students, faculty, staff and community members in critical conversations around contemporary Civil Rights issues and race in America. This year's MLK Celebration will be held January 13 - 23, 2018, and we invite you to participate in our many events we will be hosting throughout campus.
