One Planet: On MLK Day, Robert Bullard Discusses Environmental Justice
On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet Series, we’ll mark Martin Luther King Day by discussing the state of the environmental justice movement in the US. We’ll be joined by Robert Bullard, who is known as the "father of environmental justice."
Bullard argues that the laws that codify racial segregation have been eradicated, but the practices continue today, which is why refineries, chemical plants and landfills disproportionately affect communities of color.
