ArtsChange And the CCSF Library collaborate to present this project created by Richmond, CA youth working with artist-in-residence, Milton Bowens to explore what environmental justice means to youth in Richmond and how the “art making process represents an opportunity to place themselves in the center of the formulation of a world they will inherit…”
How do you define environmental justice?
Here’s how the EPA does it: “Environmental Justice is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people regardless of race, color, national origin, or income with respect to the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies. EPA has this goal for all communities and persons across this Nation. It will be achieved when everyone enjoys the same degree of protection from environmental and health hazards and equal access to the decision-making process to have a healthy environment in which to live, learn, and work.”
