This webinar explores some of the roots of the American conservation movement as they relate to white supremacy and patterns of discrimination and marginalization. The webinar begins by grounding in key concepts and frames for race equity, and then explores four windows into looking at race and the environment to reflect on how the history of the movement is affecting issues of justice and equity in mainstream environmental work today. These include the history of the conservation movement vis a vis white supremacy and communities of color, race and environmental concern, differential impacts by racial group, and organizational demographics in environmental organizations.
