This year the Spring Fling will be at Reed College in Portland!
We often consider the Pacific Northwest (and Portland) to contain the archetypes of environmentally sustainable cities. However, research on environmental inequality has shown that minorities and low-income communities in urban settings are exposed to the bulk of environmental toxins. This clarifies a major intersection in the environmental and social justice movements. This intersection is especially salient in the Pacific Northwest, where we pride ourselves on sustainability. Environmental issues cannot be addressed without addressing social justice issues and vice versa. This semester, the Cascade Climate Network will focus on this intersection and what we, as environmentalists, can do to address these issues.
