Environmental health scientist and environmental justice advocate Sacoby Wilson will detail the fight to address environmental injustice in the form of environmental racism, environmental classism, and environmental slavery across the U.S. He will discuss his efforts to "inpower" communities that have been differentially burdened by environmental hazards and his participation in community-university partnerships to address this injustice in Flint, Michigan, the Washington, DC region, and the Carolinas.
