CARGC-CDCS Symposium: Roundtable 1
"Environmental Racism and Infrastructure Injustice in the United States and Beyond"

Abstract: Cities across the United States have been built and renovated over time in ways that directly and indirectly harm communities of color. For example, the placement of toxic waste centers, highways, and factories in predominantly Black neighborhoods has led to high rates of pollution, asthma, and unsafe drinking water. One example is Hoboken, NJ, where the decision to locate the public housing community in the most flood prone area of the city actually drew Black and Latinx low-income residents into a neighborhood where they would be left vulnerable to the economic and health consequences of climate change. This roundtable will bring together scholars and practitioners to their insights and work on environmental racism and infrastructure injustice in cities in the U.S and around the world.

Invited speakers: Daniel Armanios, Lance Freeman, Nikhil Anand, Sindhu Thirumalaisamy
Chair: Kelly Diaz
