Environmental Justice

Environmental Justice

Your ability to drink clean water, breathe unpolluted air, and eat healthy food shouldn't depend on your income or your skin color. But as stories from Flint and elsewhere prove, all too often race and class play a role in access to environmental quality. We talk about the meaning of "environmental justice" and hear from three activists who are working to make the world a better, greener place. This episode features interviews with a co-founder of indigenous rights movement Idle No More, African American farmers in Wisconsin, and the late Nobel Prize winner Wangari Matthai.
