Exploring Environmental (In)Justice in Boston

A panel discussion on environmental justice in Boston, featuring speakers from the City of Boston, the Conservation Law Foundation, and the Law School. Lunch will be provided. Following the panel, at 2pm students can attend a Toxic Tour of Dudley Square, led by Alternatives for Community & Development.

How has the inequitable distribution of environmental hazards shaped neighborhoods in Boston? And how has an environmental justice movement emerged in greater Boston to address these disparate impacts on vulnerable communities? Environmental justice leaders representing academic, government, and nonprofits will discuss the history of environmental justice in Boston and the biggest challenges and opportunities ahead. Panel includes Carl Spector, Director of Climate and Environmental Planning, City of Boston; Rafael Mares, Vice President and Director, Healthy Communities and Environmental Justice, Conservation Law Foundation; and Aladdine Joroff, Clinical Instructor, Emmett Environmental Law & Policy Clinic.
