Ethics in the Evening Event

Ethics in the Evening Poster

Please join Dr. Ingrid Waldron on September 10, 2015 from 7-8:30 PM for the Ethics in the Evening event entitled “Toxic Legacies: Environmental Racism in Mi’kmaw & African Nova Scotian Communities”, which is being organized by the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Public Affairs.

Environmental racism can be defined as the disproportionate location of waste facilities and other environmentally hazardous activities near to communities of colour and the working poor, relative to other communities.

Dr. Waldron will explore processes where race, socio-economic status and class get written into Nova Scotia’s environmental policies. How do racial meanings become embedded in decision making about where waste facilities and other environmentally hazardous activities are located?
