      Environmental Justice

      The Jefferson Market Library of The New York Public Library is pleased to offer substantive college-level courses to the public for free.  Taught by local University academics and professors, our next course is Environmental Justice and Neighborhood Action. This five-week course introduces students to the history, concept, and movement of environmental justice. Students will learn about environmental justice from the perspective of race and gender, and study the role of community action in achieving environmental justice. As part of the course, students will identify projects that involve putting environmental justice principles into neighborhood action. THE PROFESSOR:  José Gálvez Contreras is a PhD candidate in Public and Urban Policy at The New School. His dissertation focuses on the intersection of environmental justice and green jobs. He earned two master’s degrees, one in public and urban policy, and one in environmental law and policy, José has extensive experience in small business development, community organizing, and political engagement.  Presented in the third floor Mae West Community Room Click here for more information and readings.
