Thirty years ago, Charles Lee authored Toxic Wastes and Race, a landmark report that documented the unequal environmental burdens borne by communities of color in the United States. The report helped launch the environmental justice movement onto the national stage. Charles Lee has since spent his career fighting for civil rights and racial equality in the environmental context, first at the United Church of Christ and then through two decades at EPA. The Environmental Justice Clinic is honored to welcome him to Yale to discuss his work and the future of the environmental justice movement. Co-sponsored by APALSA, BLSA, and YELA. Lunch will be served.
