RadioActive — Environmental Justice: Where we live, Work, and Play

By Michael Matthiesen | December 17th, 2013 | LEAVE A COMMENT

Environmental Justice is as a concept in the United States that describes a social movement in the United States whose focus is on the fair distribution of environmental benefits and burdens. Community and Social Change Program Director and UM Professor Courte Voorhees will join us on-air to explain more.

Dr. Courte Voorhees Bio:
We are all potential agents of change! We all have the capability to make the world a better place through our research, courses, service, and extracurricular activities. I do this, in part, by coordinating and promoting community-based participatory research (CBPR) and through teaching courses that challenge students to become scholars and agents of change in the community. I am pleased to direct the Community and Social Change Master’s Program and teach in Human and Social Development, Community and Social Change, and Community Well-Being.
