April 22: Race, Waste, and Place: A Discussion on Waste & Environmental Justice in North Carolina
Since the birthplace of the environmental justice movement in Warren County, North Carolina has positioned itself as a champion for environmental rights. However, we still see glaring examples of environmental malpractice disproportionately affecting low income communities in North Carolina, specifically communities of color. Join us for a panel discussion on the connection between your waste and environmental justice in our own backyard. Panelists include Orange County Solid Waste Planner Blair Pollock, post doctoral graduate fellow Danielle Purifoy, and Minister Robert Campbell of Rogers Road Church. The moderator is NC Conservation Network Environmental Justice, Air, and Materials Policy Manager Jamie Cole. The panel will take place from April 22, 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the Hitchcock Multipurpose Room of the Sonja Haynes Center, with a short reception following the discussion.
