Pipelines, Toxins, & Environmental Racism: Reproductive and Environmental Justice

Commercial personal care products are funneling toxins into the bodies of women of color. Pipelines are being built through sacred land and then leaking into the earth, into our water, and into our bodies. Gas and oil industries infiltrate communities, with disproportionate impacts on people of color and Native communities. This panel of activists will delve into how these and other urgent environmental issues are functioning within the larger framework of environmental racism. We will consider questions such as: what role do toxins play in our reproductive lives, why are people of color at the greatest risk of having their homes and bodies impacted by pollutants and pipelines, and how can the reproductive justice movement invest in environmental justice?
