On this episode, we talk with Dr. Robert Bullard, who is often referred to as the "Father of Environmental Justice." We talk about the connection between COVID-19 and air pollution, how racial inequality is present during hurricane seasons and after flooding events, how racist housing practices have lead to environmental injustice, how he got involved in the movement, and where he thinks the movement is headed.
Then, we speak with former Obama Administration official Brandi Colander about a disturbing new report that was published on Thursday that identifies how increased air pollution and heat exposure lead to pregnancy complications, especially for pregnant Black women.
