R3 is back! The first R3 event of the semester, The Many Faces of Environmental (In)Justice: Scholarship Addressing Racism, Infrastructure and Climate Action, will take place on Thursday, Sept. 9, 1:30–3 p.m.

Environmental racism takes many forms, from higher rates of pollution and stormwater issues in BIPOC communities to racist planning policies that lead to gentrification and displacement and white supremacist investments in automotive-centric transportation systems.

The event will highlight scholarship addressing environmental justice and climate action from UNC graduate students, research scientists and faculty from Urban Planning, Public Health and Epidemiology.
