When most of us think of the environment and conservation, we don’t typically consider issues of racism, sexism, class conflicts, and nativism. Yet historically, these dynamics are deeply intertwined in our nation’s conservation movement. This year’s speaker, Dr. Dorceta Taylor, director of diversity, equity, and inclusion at the University of Michigan's School of Natural Resources and Environment, has written extensively about conservation, the environment, and social equity. Join us this April for a detailed presentation about how power and privilege have influenced environmental policies, reinforced social inequities, and the impact on public health, food insecurity and clean water resources in Michigan.
