With the assistance of the Columbia Journal of Environmental Law (“CJEL”), the Columbia Journal of Race and Law (“CJRL”) hosted an engaged and well-attended fall symposium on October 19, 2016. The symposium, titled “Environmental Justice: What’s Race Got to Do With It?”, focused on the ways community members can be equipped with the necessary tools to recognize and address issues surrounding environmental justice.
“We were very excited to bring together several talented academics, practitioners, and community members to discuss the pressing environmental issues of our time. With the help of the Columbia Journal of Environmental Law, we accomplished our goal of informing the community about environmental issues in their neighborhoods,” said Stephan Bradley, Columbia Journal of Race and Law‘s Volume 7 Editor-in-Chief.
