"Environmental racism" has come to mean that people of color and poor people carry a bigger burden of pollution and hazardous waste than white people and wealthy people. It is the topic of a public speech by Deborah Robinson on Monday, May 3, at 4:30 p.m. in L01 Carson. Founder and Executive Director of the nongovernmental organization International Possibilities Unlimited, Robinson is the keynote speaker for the annual Nancy Boehm Coster Public Policy Career Encouragement Program, sponsored by Career Services. This year's program is themed "In Pursuit of Environmental Justice." Robinson's lecture is titled "Human Rights and International Environmental Policy: What Environmental Justice has to do with It."
