Date of Interview
This interviewee discusses the link between environmental justice and inequity, specifically in that disadvantaged communities do not have equal access to natural resources, green spaces, and a host of other amenities. The interviewee also states that a clean environment is foundational to environmental justice, since this ensures that clean air, water, etc., exists for the community. Moreover, good stewardship of the land fosters an understanding that we are all connected – humans and non-humans – and establishes the basis for just treatment. In general, this interviewee has a balanced concept of environmental justice that incorporates human and nature-based interests.
