EDUCATOR • AUTHOR • ACTIVIST

I was initially drawn to environmental justice because it brings together two of my great interests: nature and power. My work has sought to understand how capitalism, racism, and the state shape the environments of racially and economically differentiated populations and how communities mobilize to challenge such structures. Recently I have focused on the failure of the state to respond in a meaningful way to environmental injustice and how spectacular cases of regulatory failure are linked to racial capitalism.
