Join the UIC Latino Cultural Center for a series of online presentations this Fall with environmental and climate justice advocates from across the country and abroad. Their work reveals frameworks and solutions that utilize a justice and equity lens integrating social and economic issues to address toxic pollution and combat the climate crisis. Students in LALS 495/ ANTH 494/ MUSE 400 will facilitate a dialogue with the presenters.

Professor Ricia Anne Chansky along with two graduate students, Natalia M. Betancourt Malave and Aleyshka Estevez Quintana, will discuss the significance of mutual aid as a form of resistance and solidarity in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria and during COVID-19. They will focus on the ways in which frontline communities build responses to climate disasters.
