    Race and justice intersect in the environment. Whether it be pollution of water or the air, disasters due to climate change, or depletion of natural resources, there is a disproportionate impact on black, brown and indigenous people. And due to economic inequalities they are less likely to have the means to recover. The indigenous question, both domestic and international, highlights processes of imperialism as understood through the environmental harms and threats facing these communities. And the disparate costs of climate change inflicted on the Global South as compared with the Global North which has contributed most to warming of the planet raises questions of climate justice.

    What we do The Center engages in local community support and outreach to promote and advance initiatives and movements toward social justice, grassroots empowerment and democracy, and environmental sustainability.  It is also devoted to critical analysis of the processes and impacts of globalization, both local and international. The Center works to develop alternative socio-economic systems that conserve and share the world’s cultural, economic, and environmental resources for the benefit of humankind.
