Why do some communities bear a higher pollution burden than others? Which communities will be most heavily hit by our rapidly warming climate? How can we work with students to research, investigate, and fight for environmental justice?

Join educators from public radio’s Science Friday as we break down environmental justice work in the classroom, share some clear strategies for moving students from research to action, and examine justice-centered phenomenon as an aspect of antiracist STEM practice.

The information seemed like it could be good and very useful in the classroom. The presentation was hard to get through; too many "like" was every other word.

This was so inspiring. I love the way you kept reminding us to steep the learning in investigations and using data to help students deep dive and ask questions.

The presenters did a great job conveying the what, why and how of teaching for environmental justice. Very inspiring!
