Nearly a month ago we announced that we selected “Environmental Justice” as our annual human rights theme for 2018/2019. At that time, we provided a brief overview of the history of the modern environmental justice movement. It is now with great excitement that we officially share our 2018-2019 Chapter Theme Report: “Environmental Justice in Canada”!
Through its Human Rights Research and Advocacy Programming, our Environmental Justice theme report will help activate Campus Chapters at law schools across the country in a concerted effort to raise awareness of the impacts of environmental discrimination in Canada’s marginalized communities. Particular attention will be paid to the impact of climate change, air pollution and access to food and water in indigenous communities.
