The Earth Is the Lord’s: A Webinar with Rev. Dr. Benjamin Chavis, Jr.
April 22 @ 10:00 am
The Rev. Dr. Benjamin Chavis, Jr. was a central leader in the launch of the environmental justice movement in the 1980s and 90s. He coined the phrase “environmental racism” and played instrumental roles in Warren County civil disobedience campaign, the landmark Toxic Wastes and Race report, and the First National People of Color Environmental Leadership Summit. In this special address marking the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, Chavis will focus on the role of faith communities in resisting those powers that would seek to rule and desecrate what is not theirs.
