Climate Action Book Club: A Terrible Thing to Waste at Virtual
Monday, October 25, 2021 - 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Audience: Older Adults/ Adults
Categories: Book Club/Discussion, Green/EnvironmentJoin us for a discussion of Harriet A. Washington's book A Terrible Thing to Waste: Environmental Racism and Its Assault on the American Mind. Request a physical copy here. "Americans of color are harmed by environmental hazards in staggeringly disproportionate numbers. This systemic onslaught of toxic exposure and institutional negligence causes irreparable physical harm to millions of people across the country--cutting lives tragically short and needlessly burdening our health care system. But these deadly environments create another insidious and often overlooked consequence: robbing communities of color, and America as a whole, of intellectual power... Award-winning science writer Harriet A. Washington adds her incisive analysis to the fray." --From the publisher Register in advance for this meeting: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJMpd-CqrDojEtfYNPfYMNoSfSoFENdxtxWb After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
