During the talk, “Environmental & Climate Justice: Anti-Racist Movements and Principles for Practice”, panelists from the Yale School of Law, Northeastern University, Vermont School of Law and the University of Hawaiʻi at Manoa will explore the birth and history of the environmental justice movement and its implications for climate policy, the incorporation of environmental and climate justice principles in the practice of law and policy creation, and the professional and ethical obligation to identify and fight against environmental racism.
