The Quest for Environmental and Climate Justice — Often described as the father of environmental justice, Professor Robert Bullard of Texas Southern University is a renowned advocate for those who suffer the earliest and most damaging setbacks from climate change simply because of where they live. His presentation will focus on empowering vulnerable populations in the United States and ensuring that climate change mitigation is fair and equitable. He’ll draw on his background in urban planning and public policy to discuss emergency management, community resilience and disaster recovery strategies, offering a framework to dismantle the systemic racism that perpetuates inequality and vulnerability.
