CELDF’s Ohio community organizer Tish O’Dell explores how exploitation and discrimination of people and nature is deliberate – and how Rights of Nature is connected to ending environmental racism.
Case Western Reserve University is hosting a Social Justice Teach-In. CELDF’s Ohio community organizer Tish O’Dell leads the session Exploitation and Discrimination against People and Nature is Intentional: The Community Rights Movement – Empowering Change.
O’Dell will explore how injustice, racism and discrimination are all intentional. In the tradition of past people’s movements – including the Abolitionists and the Suffragists who organized to recognize the rights of those treated as “right-less” under the law – today a grassroots movement is building to recognize legal rights of the environment: the Rights of Nature Movement. Learn how Rights of Nature is connected to ending environmental racism.
Saturday, February 9th, 10:30 a.m. – 3:15 p.m.
