It’s no secret that Black Americans are underrepresented in the climate discussions, and in STEM fields all over the country. So, in light of current events, we wanted to elevate Black voices and provide some articles that discuss this national inequality in the environmentalism sector.
“It’s impossible to live sustainably without tackling inequality.”
“Black communities in the U.S. are disproportionately affected by environmental issues.”
“We cannot talk about environmental justice without talking addressing racial injustice.”
“Intersectional environmentalism advocates for the protection of both people and the planet.”
