This presentation with David Pellow, Dehlsen Chair and Professor of Environmental Studies and Director of the Global Environmental Justice Project, University of California, Santa Barbara features a consideration of environmental and climate justice struggles in the U.S. and globally, with a particular focus on prisons, jails, and other carceral spaces. Scholars studying environmental and climate-related risks facing low-income, Indigenous, and people of color populations have only just begun to pay attention to the relevance of carceral spaces, so this talk will offer both breadth and depth of documentation of these threats. Examples of resistance, leadership, and advocacy by incarcerated and formerly incarcerated persons will also be examined, revealing new fronts in the evolving grassroots movements for environmental and climate justice.
