Environmental Justice: A Community Perspective

May 16 @ 4:00 pm-5:30 pm

Improving communities in large cities is a complex process that often requires expert knowledge. As such, professional groups remain the principal stakeholders and ordinary citizens have little say in matters relating to property, land use and construction of infrastructure systems within their city. Our two speakers will talk about their experience in engaging and benefiting local people incommunity improvement. More Carl Maida is a professor of public health at the UCLA School of Dentistry and a member of the faculty at the UCLA Institute of the Environment and Sustainability. His expertise includes community-based research on natural hazards, community toxics, environmental disease, and urban populations.   Robin Cannon is the co-founder and president of Concerned Citizens of South Central Los Angeles (CCSCLA), a grassroots organization, founded in 1985 to oppose the building of a municipal waste incinerator in her community, as well as, to address other environmental, social, and economic problems impacting the South Central community.
