Dr. Robert Bullard is the father of environmental justice. For those who may not be familiar with the term, environmental justice describes the ways in which systemic racism and the uneven impacts of environmental catastrophes are intimately intertwined. In his foundational book ‘Dumping in Dixie’, Dr. Bullard showed that politics of place and uneven development have both racial and environmental underpinnings. From the danger of flood-prone housing to the appalling labour conditions of fast-fashion workers, it is evident that the burden of the climate crisis is unevenly felt.
