ECJ Student Projects
Students in the Environmental & Climate Justice (ECJ) course taught by Dr. Rosa Cabrera once a year develop projects to spread awareness about environmental and climate injustices affecting Chicago communities and how residents are responding with culturally relevant and place-based solutions.
ECJ Student Final Projects: Latinx Foodways, Fall 2021 Heading link
ECJ students designed four types of communication tools to frame their own storytelling around the oral histories, class readings, and discussions.
Stories & Recipes Book
The Latinx Foodways project led to the design and production of a book featuring stories and recipes collected by students in the Fall 2021 ECJ course and Latino Cultural Center interns. The stories and recipes capture connections between food traditions & cultural identity with food & land justice, in/migration, labor, health & COVID-19, and environmental/climate justice.
The Stories & Recipes Book is available here in Spanish and English.
