This program features a frank look at Environmental Justice. "Environmental Justice"
refers to the fact that environmental hazards are not evenly distributed among all
populations. The environmental impact of our culture of convenience largely falls on
those least able to defend themselves - our economically depressed communities.
One needs to look no further than Houston's Manchester community to see the difficulty
in question. In short, when it comes to clean water, fresh air, and good land, it's all
about location, location, location - but it shouldn't be. The program is by
representatives of the Houston Peace and Justice Center.
(Social period begins at 7:00 PM. Main program begins at 7:30 PM.)
Location: Pecore Hall of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, 1805 West Alabama (at the corner of West Alabama
