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.


Writer and journalist Todd Miller will help us connect the dots between climate change, displacement, and the border industrial complex and insists that it is time that we imagine something new.
