Environmental Justice

When facing environmental crises, why do some people bear more burdens than others? In collaboration with the Environment and Society Portal at the Rachel Carson Center, Seeing the Woods has contributed to the compilation of a digital resource on topics of environmental justice and environmental racism.


These resources interrogate the connections between colonial regimes, slavery, and other historic injustices and the disproportionate environmental burdens shouldered by Indigenous peoples and other peoples of color around the world.

As a complement to this growing resource page, Seeing the Woods is open to blog post submissions covering relevant topics and themes. To read more posts in the Environmental Justice series, see here. These include:
