Daniel Aldana Cohen - In These Times Podcast, May 2021

Hear Daniel Aldana Cohen be part of the fifth installment of season two of the OMNIA podcast series, In These Times: Black Lives and the Call for Justice, "Environmental Justice and Race." When COVID delivered a disproportionate blow to communities of color, environmental hazards like air pollution, which are all too frequently present in these communities, was one of the contributing factors cited by experts. The idea that race is a factor in determining who has access to resources that allow a community to thrive is not so much news as it is a part of the American story. Today, there is a wider recognition that environmental racism is one of many forms of systemic racism, and that environmental justice and climate change are interconnected problems.
